well, some update and question ..........
I enjoy the ease of finding a good quality 320kbps MP3 or a FLAC file, drop it on my USB and stick it into my Samsung BD-ES6000 bluray ($150). Only problem is that it sounds wayyy worse than regular CD (same file size as FLAC) but that plays on my Sony C222ES ($500 back in a day player).
I don't want to sit a burn CDs all day !!! :-)
Question .... is it because Sony has better guts that make music sound better? Better connection (Sony uses Analog cables, my blu-ray uses HDMI)?
How do I make my USB stored FLAC/MP3 sound better? Will upgrading to a better Blu-Ray player help???
