You should...it exists!!!rossoUK said:I dont believe in mp3
I'm with the gent who started the thread. I too am excited to have left cassette tape sound quality behind... I also prefer DVDs to VHS ... FM stereo to AM music. It's why folks spend thousands of dollars on speakers, SA-CDs, HD-CDs, and DVD Audio - they want the best sound reproduction they can get (okay, some people just do it because they've read Stereophile magazine for too many years - you people with the $2,000 phono cartridges know who you are). Full frequency on a realistic soundstage, I would want that too on an iPod, so looking for the best compromise for quality to sound quality is reasonable.Lacero said:Does the thinking go something like this, "I'll be damned if I don't completely fill up my 60GB iPod - get my money's worth! I know, I'll fill it up with Lossless music files!"
The issue with me is QUALITY. I have a £10,000 setup and only purchase hi end exotic highest fidelity kit. Thesedays if it dont say Linn or Naim I dont wanna know. I have a problem with the quality of music. To my ears MP3 sounds whack!Lacero said:Does the thinking go something like this, "I'll be damned if I don't completely fill up my 60GB iPod - get my money's worth!

Maybe the introduction of a small headphone amp and quality headphones too? a nice little portable rig perhaps?steve_hill4 said:The problem with this is that the earphones and iPod only produce up to 20kHz, which is lower than CD quality anyway. When you are out and about you get background noise, which cancels out the sound differences. I too am an audiophile, but see no point in using lossless on something that not only won't be able to produce it as well as the original music and will be almost always used in conjunction with enough noise to make the differences null and void.
