Well I actually throught about this but never looked into it. I have been listening mainly from my ipod up to this point. After throwing a few cd's in there, it does sound better. It actually seems to sound better with cd's that i burned from itunes as well. From what i understand, the encoding should be the same. So either the ipod itself or its connection is causing the problem. The next question is, will i hear much difference between the itunes cd's (aac encoding) and the real cd or lossless wma?
