So you're saying that this unit sounds worse than an iMod or an iPod with amp and CLAS playing ripped CD's or 256 Kbps music? I find that hard to believe.I am looking into this unit as I have hi res music from HD Tracks as well as lower res music mentioned above.To have a player that can play hi res and my other music (playing somewhat better) than my existing equipment would be a win win.Obviously we're not comparing sound quality sof hi res versus low res.Ken
I am thinking of getting this unit. I currently have an iMod as well as a CLAS along with a Portaphile 627 and ALO Rx Mk3 amps.
Is there a noticeable sound quality difference if listening non hi res music such as CD's I have ripped as well as 256 kps songs from iTunes?
