I'm currently trying to build an audiophile quality system in my Genesis Coupe. I currently have two JL 10 W7 subwoofers powered by an HD 750 amplifier. Within the next month I will be purchasing Focal KRX3 3-way speakers and amplifier. This is some high end car audio equipment so I want to have the best source possible. My music library is over 60 Gigs, not including all of my lossless music. I was planning to use my iPhone via USB to play play audio files, since I have all of my songs organized in playlists. But after communicating directly with Focal they informed me that most modern car head units do not use their main DAC when using a USB input, but rather a secondary "USB pre-amp/DAC". They said almost all aftermarket head units use similar, cheap USB pre-amp/DACs.
So now my question is what is the best solution for playing back my large music library in my car? I'd rather not burn a hundred CDs and if I could still use my iPhone's interface that would really be the easiest for navigation. But above all else my priority is sound quality. So hopefully you guys can help me out.
