parrot bluetooth question a2dp?

So im trying to find a way to have a2dp in my car. If I get the Parrot CK3000 EVOLUTION and the Connects2 interface CTPPAR009 then I can use my steering wheel controls for the phone functions. THe only problem with this is that the ck3000 doesnt support a2dp
Therefore

I could get the Parrot MKi9000 and the Parrot UNIKA interface PI090020AA + Parrot PC000006AA adapter. This way I would also have a2dp but the only problem with this is im not sure if it will go through all 4 speakers or if it will just do the front two......

Does anyone know if it will go through all of the speakers?
is there a better solution to getting bluetooth and a2dp?

I have the mki9100 - it depends how you have it wired up. There are output iso plugs that would normally be connected to all four speakers but as I have the HiFi amp in the boot I only use one output of these connectors for voice calls to a separate speaker. For the music from the parrot I use the line-out connected to the aux in the armrest so it obviously comes out of all speakers. I use the ipod/iPhone dock connector & it sounds good. When using a2dp it sounds very compressed particularly in the high frequencies. I've not used a2dp with any other devices so not sure if that's a characteristic of the technology in general or specific to the iPhones or the parrot...?

I have the mki9100 but not using the unika - reading other posts, it sounds as though it's operation is a little illogical when mapped to the steering buttons (in relation to up/down/forward/back layout of bmw's wheel buttons) & the volume controls the head unit at the same time as the parrot - a bit useless when using the line-out... I have the remote sat just back from the window controls & it works great, so I use that. On saying that though, the mki9000 has no screen so the illogical menu navigation issue might not be an issue at all with that model...

Bluetooth can support multiple, simultaneous profiles.

I have my OEM bluetooth and a black berry stereo gateway (AD2P streamer) connected to my iPhone 3GS and it works fine.

I'm sure the parrot kit and another AD2P streamer would work fine together.

Don't bother with the other parrot module.....just get a BB gateway or similar and wire that to your aux.

The parrot kit you have now should already mute for calls, correct? And if you are playing music through your phone, the music should mute or pause automatically and resume after hanging up.
