Anyone know anything about Bluetooth A2DP quality? I know it's enough for casual use, but would it be enough to use with a good setup as a primary music source?

They are just setting up for licensing R2D2 from Lucas.

If the transmitter and receiver both support MP3 and/or AAC bitstreams, then you can expect to get that level of quality. But if they only do SBC (more likely), then you'll not even be getting MP3 quality.

(I2C, and I2S are also two horribly abbreviated specs.)

As usual, Chris is WAY ahead of me on this.

I've been using a Motorola T505 to stream music in my car from my Droid for a while. I don't know if it is the BT part or the broadcast to FM part, but I think the quality generally sucks.

It is a very convenient and inexpensive device, though. Amazing, really. Allows me to use the car speakers for phone conversations.

I'm sure it's the FM part.
