Default Google Music Quality Setting on Tablet

While I wait for parts, I've been testing Google Music in the car on my Nexus 7 before installing it the dash. I noticed that the music quality is not very good, so I went into the settings to make sure it was set to High Quality, and surprise, there is no Music Quality setting in tablet mode!

Am I missing something? Does Google Music determine the quality based on the speed of the internet connection? I was tethering from my Nexus 5 over Bluetooth and found my speeds were pretty dismal (2 Mbps down when my T-Mobile LTE usually gives me around 30 Mbps).

Spotify lets me select the music quality in tablet mode, but I ditched them when they weren't handling notifications properly by ducking (they used to pause). They finally fixed the notifications, but they don't support the Chromecast, so I'm keeping Google Music until that happens.

I have a Nexus 7 Flo and it has a quality setting. It's the next setting below "Stream Via Wi-Fi Only" and is accessed by tapping the "Mobile Networks Stream Quality" setting.

Really? I have the option on my Nexus 5, but this is the Nexus 7:



Are you running stock 4.4.2? Are you forcing phone mode by any chance?

I'm running bruce2728's ROM right now but I had the setting in both the current ROM and the stock ROM.
