Disclaimer: LOL, this is another gear owned by James!
I have never heard of Samsung HS3000 before, but the Apt-X technology implemented in this bluetooth device should have a sound quality equivalent to that of the red book standard, 16 bit / 44.1 kHz.
Since I don't have any Apt-X technology enabled devices, I just used James' Creative ZEN3 X-Fi. There is one problem with ZEN3: the device starts to have a digital clipping when the volume level goes beyond 26/31. As this problem is not seen on its headphone output, this must be due to Creative's mistake when they initially implemented the bluetooth module.
Again, Mark of the Unicorn UltraLite-mk3 has been used for the analysis, and the output level is set to maximum. Please refer to AES17-1998 standard for further details on the analysis parameters.
