Hey all-

Trying out a free trial of Apple Music right now to try out their superior audio quality. While this is mainly for my desk setup with real headphones, DAC, AMP, etc, I am trying it in the truck too. From what I can tell there are 4 levels with varying music quality to input into the truck:
  1. Bluetooth to FORD
  2. Wireless Apple Carplay
  3. Wired Carplay (is this different than wireless?)
  4. Wired connection
Does anyone always use a wired carplay connection for better quality? Let me know what everyone is thinking on this one, some people on other forums say do a USB stick with music files... I am not going that far lol
 
Im to lazy to search but Apple Music is not hd or cd quality. Tital has better than CD quality and Amazon HD is close and I can't tell a difference with a 7k sound system. If your running stock tremor even B&O unleashed Apple should be fine. Lots of variables

Tidel is better if you have the rig to enjoy it and they have more songs available at 24. You have to enable the higher bit rate downloads in your Apple settings to get them and downloading is better than tring to stream 24 bit music. The B&O does like the Apple Spatial Audio in surround mode better than regular tracks.

Search revels they do have CD quality, right from their website.
Apple has developed its own lossless audio compression technology called Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). In addition to AAC, the entire Apple Music catalog is now also encoded using ALAC in resolutions ranging from 16-bit/44.1 kHz (CD Quality) up to 24-bit/192 kHz.
