Selecting the BLUETOOTH audio streaming playback quality (Codec)

The “Priority on sound quality” and “Priority on stable connection” modes are available as options for selecting the playback quality of BLUETOOTH audio streaming. “Priority on sound quality” enables you to play back with a setting of, not only SBC, but also AAC and LDAC, so that you can enjoy high-quality sound via BLUETOOTH. “Priority on stable connection” provides you with a more stable BLUETOOTH audio streaming. “Priority on sound quality” is the default setting.

The sound quality can be changed while the speaker is in the BLUETOOTH/Network standby mode.
