If I have a choice in a music service app on my iPad, am I better off streaming to my receiver using AirPlay audio or Chromecast audio (both are built in to my receiver), or is there no practical meaningful difference?

I truly don’t know what goes on behind the scenes to make all of this magic (to me) happen. Any insights would be welcome, both from the point of view of technical curiosity and in terms of differences in sound quality.

Between AirPlay audio and Chromecast audio, does one support higher bitrates than the other?

It seems like either takes place over wifi—am I just using the music service app to facilitate a WiFi connection straight from my router to my receiver?

Thanks for any help on this.

As long as it isn't bluetooth and the sound doesn't skip, it should be OK.
