2016 Forester 2.5i 6-speed manual

Here’s a fun question for audiophiles and tech folks.

Anyone know what audio codecs are supported on this head unit? Via USB, the owners manual states AAC up to 320 bitrate, but I want to know if I’m using Bluetooth with VLC on an iPhone as a source if I’m getting the full lossless quality.

I’m not interested in “wired vs wireless” conversation, as that might be negated by AAC via USB being capped at 320. Also, AAC Bluetooth codec supports lossless bit rates from AAC sources (Apple Lossless, for example), so that point isn’t valid here either.

Simply, does the HU support AAC or just SBC?
