Is there a chance that not all X3's exhibit this MP3 distortion? I ask that truthfully.
I can't claim to have the best hearing in the world, that would be subjectively ridiculous.
However, I am picky(as we all are here) and experienced(though not as much as a few here).
I just can't accept that I CAN tell a difference between my 320 MP3 and FLAC, but not hear the distortion issue raised by many. It's confounding to me.
I like to browse using 2 TF cards, one for a larger 320 collection, and one a selection of my favourite old cd's on FLAC.
The FLAC to me, is typical of what we say around here, slightly more spacious, slightly more reaching dynamically. The upper treble region is crisper. I can tell these differences on good (older) recordings, but cannot hear this distortion issue. I know myself, if I could hear it, I would HATE it!
How can we conclusively say the problem applies to all X3's?
