Has anyone had experience using a Bluetooth receiver with an xda 1 or 2? In my bedroom I have hooked my phone up with analog cables and played music through my phone and the Audio was ok at best (Not that I was expecting too notch quality through my phone). Given that Bluetooth isn't that greatest quality to begin with, if I were to hook up my Bluetooth receiver through an emotiva xda 1/2 would that be an improvement? I would prefer the mobility that the Bluetooth offers but didn't know if I should just stick eight the Ol 3.5 mm to analog and save the money.

My experience has been that iPhone 6's have pretty good DAC's, previous models were not so good. As a result the analogue out of an iPhone 6 is not too bad a quality for background music. For previous models or anything more than that (ie; actually listening to the music) I'd strongly suggest digital output either via airplay or direct connection.
