I upgraded from an iPhone 4 running Apple Lossless files through my TF 10s to the C3 BH combo running FLAC/WAV and I CAN tell the difference. The sound is wider, fuller, clearer, and easier on my ears. It doesn't tire me out after long-term listening (ear fatigue). I haven't listened to MP3 for years just because I want as much quality as I can get. Sometimes you can't "tell" the difference but it is there nonetheless, just below conscious awareness.
Years ago (the 80s) I bought a pair of KEF tower speakers. They were great. Then I went back to the retailer and listened to a pair of KEFs that cost three times as much. I could HEAR the difference, maybe 10-15% improvement. Would that be worth the financial cost? I decided, no. Buying the C3, with or without the BH, is like that. The difference is there, is it worth it to you? As to re-ripping your CDs, I re-ripped everything and I'm glad I did. It was worth the time I spent.
Thank you! I will consider the option provided that there's a possibility for me to have the time to rip my CDs into flac.
As of the moment, that possibility is slim tho...
