Well guys let me explain whats going on. I have, what I think is, above average Music/HT equipment now and something is happening. My equipment is 'telling on' my music files basically. I can hear inconsistent stuff throughout tracks and albums, sound fades in and out, music quality issues that I'm lead to believe have to do with the format they are saved as.
I guess what I'm asking is this. Is there a better place to download better quality music? Is there a better way to rip my CDs? What other options are there? I'm not prepared however to go to SACDs or big investments like that, but I feel I can get more out of what I have maybe? I'm also thinking that recording problems are also partly due to how they were recorded in the first place. What are y'alls thoughts? Hope this makes sense!
