Sirius audio quality is a whole other thread, and I agree with you.
FLAC is something that I haven't spent time playing with, but not many devices will play it. I highly doubt our HU will play it. It probably only supports WAV, MP3, and WMV (I'm too lazy to look it up). I don't even think an iPod will play FLAC.
Another reason why I've invested time in it is because I really
don't want to re-rip my entire library. I did it all at 320 (though I have a few at 256) and I don't hear the compression so I'm happy with it.
