Are you converting directly from mp3 to vorbis? I was under the impression that converting from 1 lossy format to another lossy format further degrades the quality of the file.

I had been waiting for the lossless wavpack format to be better supported, so that I could re-rip my music that is currently in mp3 format. Wavpack is very similar to flac, but it uses the id3 tagging standard. I rather have fewer high quality songs, than more lower quality songs on my mobile device.

Now, I'm thinking about investing in the Pioneer XDP-100R (http://www.techhive.com/article/3050...s-supreme.html). It's expensive, but I don't want to further strain my eyes looking at a tiny screen (which is why I don't have a smartphone).
