Surely that would depend on how you set the encoding (for ripped CDs), or how the stuff you download is encoded. You could always fill your ipod with a lossless format, of course you fit a lot less songs on that way. I find the worst thing about iPods to be the headphones that come with them, why people use them is beyond me, the audio quality is fine for a portable device, but the headphones make is sound like your listening under a swamp.
Will.

...but.......but......what if Google is wrong?

In dash record player for that authentic audio experience.

I've had an ipod hooked up to my pioneer head unit for ages and the sound is fine because I do all the mp3 rips myself.

It's got nothing to do with what goes in. It's about the output. You need something that completely bypasses the iPad in order to get decent signal out.

get the new alpine deck. it controls my ipod straight from the deck itself and had a function to make mp3 sound better if you dont know how to rip them properly.
also i canned the idea of an idap in my car as the dash isnt set up to house one in the gc8.
possibly an ipad mini....... maybe

Yeah that's like mine swav (except pioneer). It's not coming out of the headphone jack, just plugs into the ipod at the bottom. Then you just use the deck to navigate.
