You should be happy that this is not a forum for HiFi freaks Smile | :)

Traditional BT sound codecs were never accepted as anywhere close to HiFi. LC3, The newest codec standard, and the one pushed for the Bluetooth Low Energy variant (rapidly displacing "classical" BT), is a great step forward, based on twenty-five years experience with "psycho-acoustic coding", such as MP3 and HE AAC. It is probably the first BT sound standard that will be accepted by the HiFi buffs. But is so new that it certainly is not supported either by your sound bar or by your laptop.

One LC3 quality I think more important than HiFi: It was designed for minimal latency (i.e. delay in coding/decoding) - a requirement pushed by gamers with BT headsets, wanting sound effects in perfect sync with images. When playing music stored on your laptop, it means nothing. But I wish IP phone had a (lack of) delay comparable to POTS / ISDN. The delay is the single reason why I hate talking with friends on the phone nowadays. I have a long-term hobby project of setting up a SIP client with LC3 codec to see if that would be more acceptable. (Problem is that this is #37 on my list of hobby projects ...)

For the HiFi, I will be in the first row to applaud if you play your old-codec sound to a HiFi buff, telling him that you are using the new LC3 codec, and he praises the sound quality ... I know of no area more affected by placebo and other psychological factors than sound quality. For those who know nothing about LC3, older codecs are probably perfectly fine!
