This for sure... Make sure to set the level at the midpoint. I had lots of distortion in turning that up. Also you need to use a line out aux instead of the headphone jack. If you do these 2 things then your music will sound as good as the format/bitrate ripped. Doing this and playing ALAC files will equal CD quality. Really anything better than 128k MP3 will be good.
