    The quality is so much better when connecting to my Denon via bluetooth than via the audio out from my echo dot Gen 2. It MUST be sending the digital stream directly and not converting it to audio bluetooth. The difference is remarkable. It is SO MUCH audibly better over bluetooth, allowing the Denon to do the D/A conversion. I’m here because I’m curious to know exactly how it works. I’ve upgraded to Amazon Music HD and am wondering if I can tell the difference.

    Interesting. I would not have bet this. I just ordered a Denon AVR-S750H and was going to pair the Dot via aux to RCA. Everything I’ve read about bluetooth says aux would be better but you say otherwise! I’ll chime back in when I get everything up and running. Although, I’m leaning towards returning the Dot since my receiver has built in ethernet which I plan to use with Spotify Connect directly (if possible).

      Hi Frank, a multipoint AV receiver or Hi-Fi amp with full size stereo speakers will trump a Bluetooth speaker any day. But if you must use Bluetooth, we recommend superior and better sounding Bluetooth speakers. This is not to say that connecting via Bluetooth is better, the analogue connection in your case will do just as well if not better. Our recommendation for better quality sound is to pick an Hi-Fi sound system OR superior Bluetooth speakers. Look forward to hearing about your set-up.
