Anyone had any experience with what bit rate works best with the Meridian system? Also file extension flac, aiff, wav or alac.
Ditto. I did a lot of experimenting with file formats, different bit rates, etc. and eventually came back to ripping my CDs using Apple Lossless via iTunes, then syncing to my iPhone. Track names, album art all work perfectly and sound quality is excellent on Platform 10 Meridian. Only thing is that the song files are much larger than mp3, but with the 64GB iPhone 5, not much of an issue.Don't know if I'm going to be much help but;
We were thinking that the new updates would allow FLAC and I was all geared up for it but, it didn't happen so I've gone back to my 160gb Ipod but now I've started re-ripping using Apple lossless. It obviously works fine and the quality is very good since the updates. It was on shuffle the other day and tracks from Stevie Wonder's 'Songs in the key of life' came on, sounded excellent and that was one of the albums I've re-ripped at lossless. I've decided it's the most convenient way to deal with my tunes for now.
Doesn't really answer your questions about the other file extensions but, hope it helps.
Yes, things move on but not necessarily upwards.I remember when all I had to do to guarantee quality was make sure the heads in my Nak Dragon were clean and that I had a fresh supply of TDK MA-R, Maxell UD-XLII (or XL II-S).
Digital tomfoolery has ruined everything. <expletive> 13-year olds are dictating mixing quality (for $8 earbuds). Of course you don't need more than 1kb song files for that level of suck. Oh wait - I guess being able to get 20,000 songs worth of crap in a package the size of a box of smokes is ultimately more important than having any of it sound good.
I quit smoking three days ago. <walks out slams door>
