Best Option for Sound??? Pick our of these 3... How do you do it?
So, I have 3 ways of listening to music. Before I start setting everything up etc, I just want to know what you would pick.
I get my music by downloading it from different sites and quality is great. Goes from something like 44100khz (1411kbps) 40mb file to as high as 192000khz (5200kbps or something) 180mb FLAC files.
Now ... question is what to do with them for best quality out of my decent home theater.
Take my downloaded FLAC music burn it on regular CD WAV (so that gets downgraded to 44100 I believe) and play CD through my SACD/CD player connected to receiver only for AMPing. So sound gets processed in the CD player (i like this). This would be STEREO ... no sub (sometimes I feel like my speakers give me all I need without the use of a subwoofer)
Place these high quality FLAC files on to USB and play them through a bluray player connected via HDMI cables to Receiver where receiver processes them. Most likely will do a 2.1 system including the sub. (Pure Direct mode on receiver). I am assuming this way 192000 quality won't get downgraded.
Record these files on to a DVD and once again let BlueRay player now play this disk. May sound better than playing files through USB port.
So which one do you think will sound the best??? If not any of the 3 options listed above, is there a better way???
P.S. My equipment
