You know that feeling you get when you pump your speakers up and play your favorite music you've downloaded from iTunes or ripped at 128 KBPS AAC (160 KBPS MP3) and you just listen to it, no interuptions? That feeling is dead. I'm becoming an audiophile. I purchased my first DVD audio CDs in March and now on every song that isn't DVD audio/lossless, I hear badly encoded music, wether its drums that don't stand out, or just badly mixed lyrics. I already decided on buying new speakers, but I fear I need to buy new CDs to rip it at a higher quality. I think I am going to go have a chat with that radio station to broadcast only high quality lossless files on the air. Its like a disease - no music, and I am turning violent. Seriously, I hate this because now I'm noticing quality of songs and can obviously hear a difference between DVD-Audio and CD-Audio. Too bad DVD-Audio isn't catching on at ALL.
