It's A Rip!
So, you have your bit Play HD installed to your vehicle and you notice that full digital is the business. The problem is that your on-board CD player now sounds rubbish. This is often what we find and unless your car has an enabled MOST buss that you can tap into, then your existing music collection may sound very disappointing in comparison to your hi-res tunes. The answer is to have your CD collection converted into FLAC files and burned to a HDD. You can then play them via your bit Play HD and enjoy reproduction with no read errors and without the enforced sound curve the car maker has put into the head unit to try and make his threepenny halfpenny speakers sound better. You can do this yourself if you have plenty of time and patience and a suitable software package to ensure that all the track, artist and album data is intact and correct. Alternatively, you could use a ripping service. A friend of the Driving Sounds family offers such a service called Bit Perfect Network Audio. Having self-ripped and ended up with a complete mess myself, I cannot recommend BPNA highly enough!

So, all that remains is for me to wish you a very merry Christmas and wish you a great New Year. I hope Santa brings you lots of things to enhance your listening pleasure.
