Wicked - I didn't find the Levinson too bad, especially in the RX300, so if the B&O is that much better I'll be well pleased. 500 Gig drives down to under ?50 now so will be getting one in the near future and start filling it up readyI ordered my Q5 with the B & O sound system upgrade, I could not be happier with the sound. This system is considerably better than the Marc Levinson system that I had in my Lexus RX 330. I highly recommend this upgarde.
Glad someone else can tell the difference. I always rip to lossless as I have always maintained that the better the play back equipment the more apparent the loss of quality is with low bitrates.Yes I really think its well worth the upgrade. When playing files make sure they are of the highest quality as you can really hear the difference. Most of my iTunes library are mp3's at 128 kbps which are really quite poor compared to the lossless formats which I am now converting to.
You cannot convert files that have already been compressed back to lossless quality - period.Can you explain how to convert them?
Do you do it in itunes?
From what I've read the sat nav now does 6 digit postcodes. I'm awaiting mine in a couple of weeks but I'm sure someone else could confirm.Just to add to what everyone else has said, yes it is worth the difference. Dont forget to add the DAB radio as well as when you get good reception this is great as well.
Personally I would forget the inbuilt sat nav that only gives you 4 digit postcodes and buy a £200 Tomtom or Garmin and spend the money on more toys and gadgets.
When I compared the B & O system with Audi sound system, I was surprised that the Audi sound system (180W) playing loudly for 20-30 percent of the B & O system (505W).after listening 2 both,b&o beats the 10 speaker set up but there both not loud enough,need to see if the max volume can be changed.
