Hey guys, I store all of my music (roughly 127 hours worth, ripped) on my MP3 player (iRiver iHP-120). To get top quality out of my rips I always encode my rips into .ogg format. Anyway I need a HU that I can use my player with (aux) and that will support not only mp3/wma but ogg aswell.. I can't find any information on this.. has anybody had experience with this? my price range is flexible.. anywhere from 300-500, i could buy one used so if something retails above that let me know about it anyway. thanks :)

Your MP3 player will send out a low-level analog signal to the deck already, it handles the format itself. Any deck with an AUX on it will work. I have that same mp3 player, love it :cool:

WMA has a lossless mode so if you really want top quality you don't *have* to stick to ogg.

I knew that but he isn't going to get an ipod just for apple lossless. His HU works with wma lossless now. He'll probably stick with lossy Ogg (which is more than fine for what he's doing) and like the 2nd poster said since he's using aux input it'll work great.

Thread revival!

Anyone know if any new products support Vorbis? I'd like to get a new Pioneer HU but I want Vorbis ****it.
