    How do you source your high resolution/CD quality non lossy files

    How do you source your flac files (not mp3) or even dsd files?

    1) CDs/LPs
    2) internet (but could dodgy quality)
    3) purchase new high definition flac
    4) friends
    5) others means

    2) Internet mostly. There's good (not great) availability of FLAC audio in torrents usually. It's way faster for me to download a torrent than actually ripping the CD even if I own it/borrow from friends.

    i am using sony's media go, very quick and hassle free, just pop a cd, then press the close button and hey presto after 8-12 minutes free high quality freshly cooked flac from decent source, the sound is simply out of this world, shame my pc keeps overheating though

    5) I use Tidal to stream Flac to my Sonos Connect. Completely hassle free.

    I just use a toslink to my pioneer amp. Or the NAS DLNA server to which the amp is also hooked with a LAN cable. The things you can do these days...

    ok, seems quite premium pricing, but it may have a market

    if you stream flac on your mobile, surely it will kill the data in a matter of hours
