The link in the OP leads me to a page talking about a standalone portable player.

And to tell the truth, this thread doesn't contain a word about a product. Just some whining about hi-rez formats...

I'm curious to see what comes out of this. The fact that it plays hi-rez is incidental, AFAIC. A portable device with 256 GB capacity and an SDXC (not microSD) card slot has my interest.

I didn't make that claim. Maybe that's how you interpreted what I said. I said that AAC's sound quality is better than Mp3 at relatively low bitrates. But at some point they're essentially the same....

You should be ripping to, and whenever possible, purchasing music in a lossless format such as FLAC. Then, if you want 320 kbps Mp3, or 192 kbps Mp3, or 128 kbps AAC, or ten years from now some other...

Yep. Although there are one or two lossless streaming services, the rest are all using lossy formats. Which is probably best for portable streaming, but less than ideal for home use. And quality...

I see these have a microphone and remote buttons, which annoy the hell out of me. But they also have a replaceable cable. Does Westone sell a cable without the remote for a reasonable price?

Does anyone have a favorite USB 3.0 microSD card reader? It doesn't need to have an SD card slot, but fine if it does.
