I have an aptX-capable headset and I want to use it to play music with the highest possible audio quality the headset can technically provide in Ubuntu. How can I do that?
While A2DP supports a lot of codecs optionally and is extensible to support other manufacturer-defined codecs. AptX does not only boast to provide better audio quality than the competition, but also advertises to reduce delay to have lip sync audio when watching videos.
Here are my questions:
- How can I make aptX-capable Bluetooth equipment use this codec in Ubuntu?
- What solutions are available?
- How can I check and verify an established connection for the codec it uses?
I'd like to point out, while this may look like a sponsored post, it is not. In my opinion FLAC and Opus should be the gold standard, but to my knowledge devices with support for these codecs aren't available right now.
