Well, I've been noticing a quality issue in my ripped recordings. I experimented a little by re-ripping a couple of albums to FLAC. While I haven't had a ton of time to listen to the differences I do seem to notice better quality than mp3. So thats got me wondering about re-ripping all my CDs to this format. Is this a good idea? A good portion of my music is OLD mp3 download from the days of Napster and also some recently from Itunes. Not sure if much can be done with those files is there?
Another issue I'm seeing is storage. Can my Onkyo 809 be hooked to an external Hard drive and use it like it uses my jump drive/thumb drive, for storage? Seems like it'd be a good way to keep my music available and also have plenty of storage. What do you guys think or suggest??
Btw, I don't have the funds to invest in things like SACD or a bunch of equipment. Just want to get all I can out of what I have because apparently there is plenty of room for improvement!
