Nothing wrong with high bit rate mp3

If you have usb then you can put that in any format the head unit understands. What filters its pure digital till it hits the Dacs .
which seems like the best solution.
Most of the internet broadcast stuff is low quality or if its high quality
the bit rate costs are prohibitive as in spotify pay for it version, and mobile reception over most of the networks that broadcast it would probably be questionable. Also the people that own the mobile networks are retracting
the all you can eat data plans or putting some kind of caps or restrictions
on them if you use a lot of data.
HD Radio isn't to bad if you happen to live in area where there is a strong
signal and a decent selection of stations.
