Happy to do a blind test, with classical music, while driving. It's not just tiny details, it's the punch/speed/phase/artifacts. Even if you doubt that ... should the option to play lossless audio be removed, because *other* people decide that *I* cannot hear the difference?

PS Volvo C30 with laminated windows and High Performance audio.

That's what USB connectors are for: you can plug in flash drives with your music collection on them.

USB is great indeed ... and of course, we need support for lossless audio formats. My 2009 Volvo supports .wav on a 250 GB partition. That's a lot of lossless music. Current Volvo models do not support any lossless audio format. And, their user interface is much much slower. I've been shopping around and most brands (even the top ones) seem to focus now on mp3 and bluetooth solutions only, even in their top audio systems. AFAIK the bluetooth connections shall be lossy (A2DP / SBC) by default?

Regardless of this, I am still not sure if I shall even have the guts to buy a car without a real HAND brake ... which seems to be another trend.

We can predict everything, except the future.
