Just a quick one - as part of a recent upgrade, I am currently listening to my new iPod 160gb with some Sennheiser CX-300 buds. My music files are ripped from as new cds in Apple's lossless format. Can I consider the sound to be High Fidelity? If not, how far am I away from it?
A sort of related question - when ripping my cds, does iTunes recognise better than 16bit/44kHz recordings? I have some 20/44 (on cd) and 24/96 (dvd-audio) recordings that I would like to try on my iPod.
I am open to suggestions for better buds, and maybe a portable amp/dac combo. I use this gear for commuting to and from work (about an hour each way on the train).
Your thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated, as always!
