    So as my post title says in iTunes I want to improve the quality of music without messing up the playlists? Is that even possible? Meaning can I take my original CD and import it again using something better than VBR mp3 format? Will it copy over the original file? And what should I use AAC...
  2. System Setup and Connection
    I'm trying to figure out the simplest way to set up a home theater system with a Dish Hopper receiver with HDMI, a Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI, a set of external surround sound speakers, a plasma TV with 2 HDMI ports, a MacBook air, and a new ipod touch. All the music I want to play is in...

    After updating to the horrid new ios7 for my iPhone and the updated iTunes software for my 9 year old laptop, I discovered iTunes radio. I'm not sure if it was there before, but I really like it. I fell in love with Pandora when it released and have updated everything I have to accomodate it...

    There is an interesting article in regards to iTunes and who it actually belongs to. Even thou you "buy" the itunes song, in reality you are just renting it per Apple so Bruce is trying to change that. It should be interesting how this turns out.
  5. Audio Processing
    Came across this page link on another post here in HTS - http://www.benchmarkmedia.com/wiki/index.php/ITunes-QuickTime_for_Mac_-_Setup_Guide Part of this is a little confusing to me. Are they saying to set the sample rate in the midi set-up the same as the source or the highest your DAC can...
  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Greetings, I am going to get an Onkyo 809 AVR, and a HSU stf-2 subwoofer. The system is for my small office, and is mostly for music. For speakers, I am aiming for the Ascend Sierra-1s. I am basing this solely on reviews. I have no faith in any dealer I've been to so I figure this is as safe...
  7. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Greetings, First of all, THANK YOU to everyone for being patient with my questions. I am taking a home theater plunge to replace some 25-year old equipment. It has been a journey! I need a few more opinions. First, I want to confirm something. I will use the system for 70% music and 30% HT...

    I was listening to my Oppo the other day through my desktop set-up (Orb Mod1s w/ Mirage sub through NuForce Icon) and noticed the sound was significantly more "visceral" than when I listen to the Apple Lossless version played back off my Mac Mini using the NuForce as the DAC. After thinking it...

    Congratulations PSN, you are the first video game console to sell content from HBO. That means you can't buy True Blood, The Sopranos or Rome on Xbox via Zune yet, but you already could on iTunes if you were willing to pay $3 per episode. Contrary to a few reports, that premium pricing...

    Just in case anyone was interested, iTunes 9.1 update adds the option to turn on automatic bitrate conversion to 128kbps AAC files when you add songs from iTunes to your iPod. This means that your lossless (or higher bitrate MP3s) will be left intact on your computer, and automatically...

    So I finally went for the 160gb iPod and I'm in the putzy phaze right now. I'm used to Windows Media Player, which had it's annoying quirks, but it never demanded that I buy stuff, that was nice. I imported all my music to iTunes and immediately noticed that only my Beatles and Aerosmith...

    I have recently hooked my PC to my HT via digital coax cable. I have ripped my most played CDs to apple lossless, and I'm loving iTunes fullscreen on my LCD. BUT! I firmly believe the sound is degraded quite a bit compared to playing directly off a CD player. I noticed iTunes have a volume...
