Just for listening or some other practical application? From personal experience, Bose is hard to beat for home theater simplicity. remember though to spend as much on room treatment as you do on the system

Went for the Sony sound bar + sub and 2 x back speakers.

Sounds killer!

I guess I'm late to this party, but in case others are searching for such solutions, it's worth remembering that the Bluetooth protocol must use lossy compression on all the audio it passes through.

Even if that audio is already in a lossy data-compressed format, the general behavior is to compresses it again, 'multiplying' the damage from the first encoding with the second.

There are some devices that support other data compression codecs -- but nothing that can deliver uncompressed stereo sound at even 44.1/16, let alone 96/24 -- the BT signal bandwidth is simply too limited for even CD quality sound.

Here are some articles, in inverse order of publication (newest first)...
