Digital Audio Player

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Today I**ripped some of my CD's to AIFF and Flac format. AIFF was copied to iPad. iPad default music app can't play Flac file.

I have a Asus play on media player which is connected to Marantz SR5005 through HDMI cable.

Now alternately Nothing Else matters in Flac format was played on Asus media player and same song in AIFF format was played on iPad which was connected to SR5005 via*USB. There was night and day difference in the SQ.*
Now I played same mp3 on Asus and iPad again iPad SQ was much better. I did this exercise for different songs and got same result. The EQ on iPad was Flat and Sound check in settings was off.

While playing songs on iPad**Mids were tight & muscular.*Cymbal shimmer was cleaner,sharper, and more metallic. Piano and Strumming of Acoustic Guitar was more convincing.

Now I'll not use Asus Media player for Music. So suggest a media player which is good in overall musicality.
