There was a noticeable difference in my Kenwoods compared to USB and AUX in with the same or higher bit rates.

funktional I've always had trouble with interference with AUX in while also using a power cord (Charging the phone at the same time). I then switched to a unit that utilizes USB for both audio in and charging and now I can charge and play simultaneously with no interference.

longlaketech I just tried using a monoprice bluetooth adapter to aux in. Works excellant playing audio from my tablet. Great 20 dollar solution. My ipod must have a bad or poor fitting cable.

JoseC I don't know about poor sound quality exactly, but I do know that using both the Line In and Bluetooth, I have to crank my iPod up all the way, and then I have to turn the stereo up pretty high to get it to be reasonably audible.

Turning the iPod up all the way does cause some distortion.

Aux in sound quality

I have the base sound system in my 2012 Focus, and the sound quality using the aix-in is pretty poor. Tried different cables, etc, but no better sound. Anyone else having this issue? Anyone have any luck with a warranty repair?
