Topic: Bluetooth vs USB - audio quality

Hi, not directly related but has anyone noticed the difference in audio quality between what is coming off the USB stick and what is coming from the iPhone via bluetooth?

I have exactly the same files on my phone as I do on my USB drive. When I play one from the USB it sounds fairly low quality (by comparison), however if I then play the same file from my iPhone the quality is far superior??

What gives?

Could be  bitrate mate, compression in file formatting.
