My MP3 player plays FLAC files. Does the head unit have to be able to play FLAC files for them to work? or is the MP3 player what matters? Will the MP3 player bypass the head unit?

It depends how you connect your mp3 player to the HU. If you plug it via USB the HU needs to understand(decode) FLAC format. If you connect it to the HU AUX-IN plug(3,5mm/RCA) the mp3 player decodes it same way it does with headphones.

Is there a preferred method for good SQ?
