Wifi transfers sound better than Bluetooth,
It's more accurate to say that wifi has higher bandwidth than bluetooth, so you can use a better encoding. Bluetooth encodings can be decent, but are not as good as what you can do over a conventional network layer for IP.
Ethernet in turn better than Wifi.
This is not true. Wired ethernet has more reliable throughput, but wifi (especially 5 GHz, with lower range and less contention) has more than enough bandwidth for even uncompressed Red Book audio (1.4 Mb/s).
Ah... I could end up using wifi then. I'll have to see/hear; again, a comparison is definitely in order.

Oh mighty dictator of the spider's lair
Why are the smilies appropriate?
Your horse drawn wagon is as inexpensive as a London unforunate
Who can you please when your tree house of diamonds collapses?
Its ladder being pulled away by the children who won't grow
Unleash the lizard
Squash the rebellion, for they mean to commit highway robbery
Turn their words into incomprehensible letters
Prisoners of the physical realm
Only the arms of the bear can save them now
But the ref pulls out the red card
The crab of the downward spiral eats ravioli and ejaculates corrupt Linux files
