Agreed. You can however put AIFF or WAV files on a player like the iPod and have no loss of sound quality. MP3's or MP4's compressed at something like 320 does lose a little quality, but most people are not going to hear it, especially not on the stock GTI system.davet210 said:MP3's and other compressed sound files, whether from an iPod, downloaded from the Internet, or burned onto CD's, sound like crap on a good stereo system. Flat and dull.
They are squashed with a 10 to 1 compression ratio. You just can't take out that much information and have it sound as good as an uncompressed source like a CD or a sound file ripped with lossless compression. There's no such thing as a free lunch.
True, but as I've said before. CD's do not update themselves, which becomes especially useful when podcasts are important to you.UnitedGrayGTi06 said:The aux input comes standard in the 2007 GTi and it works with all MP3 players. But 6 burned CD's times about 20 songs per CD. You can have about 120 songs on tap without an MP3 player.
