    Which music codec (.mp3 / AAC /WAV) is most popular at the BeoSound 5 users ?

    I would like to use .wav, but then I would miss a lot of Artwork.... Apple lossless is not supported so what do you recommend (if you use iTunes) ? May be .aac 320 kbit/sec or .acc iTunes plus ?

    In a very very short time Apple Lossless and FLAC will be supported. I started ripping at home to Apple Lossless in anticipation.

    Hi guys,

    I used to rip my CDs in Apple lossless, I now use .aac 320 kbit/sec as I really can not hear the difference - aac320 is absolutely superb plus it doesn't use stupid amounts of space!

    This is good news.  Thanks,

    We can inform you that there are no present plans for an update that supports Apple

    Its not that I would not settle on 320 but I need gapless playing for live recordings and I am hoping they have that for Apple Lossless like they have it for windows media.

    Is it the BS5 that doesn't support gapless playback??

    Re: Which music codec (.mp3 / AAC /WAV) is most popular at the BeoSound 5 users ?

    I ripped my entire collection into WMA losless.

    It's equal to CD quality (ok, takes a lot of space) but it was worth it.
    When you're listening to the Charts, you can't here the difference on the low quality *** that they call "music". It is too compressed with maximized loudness.

    When you have good instrumental recordings (personaly I think that CDs from Chris Rea are very well recorded) you can hear the difference between MP3 and WAV/WMA Losless.

    And to tell the truth: You don't need a 5000 Euro Audiosystem when you want to listen to MP3 music! That's mad! :-)

    It does only for Windows media files. You can't generate those from a Mac without installing Windows.
