Re: best system for senior classical music listener
flamonio, I take your point about the sound quality of MP3. My daughter has an ipod, tinniest sound I ever heard.
The one I was considering, Cowon s9 is supposed to have excellent sound without extra features. It is $360 about and then you need head phones, charger, case etc. etc., and probably one of those streaming things as well.
I initially was considering MP3 because sites which sell classical CDs have finally been offering downloads and the Cowon supports Flac. The downloads cost less than CDs, even before shipping charges are added. I then realized that I could simply download and burn (is that the right word?) the download to a CD. So, I think I had rather spend the budget on good CD equipment.
