Hi guys, not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but here goes.....
Ive recently just stuck in an asus xonar D2x into my pc, (I7-950, evga gtx 560 super-clocked, asus sabretooth x58) and its damn snazzy. makes games like star craft and civ 5 sound amazing.
up untill now ive been using itunes as my main media center ( I don't tend to use my pc for media anyways, my ps3 is my baby) but my cd's sound amazing now with the card, I used windows media player to listen back to a few albums on CD, some tool, dream theater, some mastodon, and a bit of frank zappa. as a result my i-pod really sounds bad in comparison.
(oh, im using sennheiser px 100-ii's)
now, to get some kind of lossless audio quality sound what form of file must i use re-rip & save my c.d.'s in? flac?
also can I continue to use I-tunes and get the same higher quality or is it not suited for that kind of sound? also either way, is there a way to play lossless audio from an ipod?
i understand that lossless audio will take up way more space than wav's or mp3's, storage isn't a problem.
if i tunes isnt a good choice for hq audio, what would be?? power dvd came with the sound card, i'm not a fan of it.
.....id totally recommend the xonar. its awesome. (there are probably better cards out but, i'm happy)
