Well, my ears aren't really good enough to make a real difference
between SBC and aptX. Also aptX is a quite simple and old codec,
so don't expect it to compete with Vorbis, AAC or any advanced
OTOH, aptX has one significant advantage in the context of
realtime streaming (ie. bluetooth A2DP): it is really low-latency.
