Lossless audio—going back to CD's
The HK in the M3 is much too nice to waste on .mp3's. Especially the garbage that Apple is trying to sell through the iTunes store. They promote their audio to be sampled at 256kbps, but it sounds even worse than that.
After trying to work with the iPod, even ripping music at 320kbps, it's time to move back to lossless audio. I've been listening to CD's lately and it's noticeably much better. High's are tighter and more succinct, and bass is stronger and deeper.
Wish there was a better solution for lossless with an iPod or other mobile device. .flac is probably the best alternative for now but even then it's a pain to work with the files.
Any one have a similar experience?
