Believe me, I know. I choose FLAC/APE wherever possible, but I can't find any of Melissa's music anywhere else, and they only sell the mp3s...

If I could buy the CD and rip it to FLAC, I would.

After hearing Rene's hybrid amps one has to wonder whether it is the tubes, or a low current, high voltage output stage driving an output transformer.

I also wonder what else Paul's old Yamaha was masking.... the device with the least DDR tends to be the one that limits your system.

If you are used to MP3, you may have to pick your jaw up off the floor so you can drop it again when you plug a full fidelity music file through it...

Uhh... I think you missed a post up there. Most of my collection is FLAC/APE, much of it at 88.2 or 96.

Having said that, I find a properly-encoded 320kbps MP3 to be very enjoyable. Preferable? No. Terrible? Not even close. If it is all I can get, I take it.

I'm old school, so I don't even know who that is. I'm a bop/post-bop era fan.
