See here;Thank you for the post!!
Could someone a lot more tech head than me explain the term "MOST bus"?
(I am happy to know there is a 24/48 5.1 system out there. If anyone gets a good chance to listen to this, please give me your take. I am not in the market for a new car now, but in a few years, I may be seeking a used 2018 RDX.
Perhaps another Demo Disc like previous Acura versions...OR who knows maybe the ES mixed appetite for destruction might be a choice...
So glad to hear that the speakers sound goodUPDATE:
I have had my car for a few days and am planning an in-depth review. I don't want to start it until I clear some things up with ELS themselves.
Just a quick note or two: It sounds freaking amazing. Best ELS playback yet. It does not play 5.1 .flac files as of today. It likes 24/48 5.1 .wav files, which unfortunately cannot be tagged. The playback is NOT gapless, so DSOTM and LOVE get broken between songs for a split second or so. ELS says that while it accepts a 24/96 5.1 .wav file, the system is downsampling it to 24/48, so to save space on a USB stick you may as well downsample yourself before you make your stick.
I will have pictures and stuff when I get everything sorted out. The car itself is amazing, the first new car I've had that I actually had to read the manual!
Anyway, the 5.1 is real, discrete, and sounds great. Now they just have to fix a few things and it will be perfect. Fix .flac compatibility, fix gapless playback. Nothing critical, but things worth fixing IMHO.
Yes. I also has an AT&T Hotspot for the car. Free for first 3 Months, then $10 or $20 a month after that if you want it. Otherwise, it can link to your phone's hotspot to get the updates for the NAV and the other electronics.Jon,
Glad you are enjoying the car - does the new RDX have the capability to do over-the-air SW updates like Teslas?
Do you know what filesystems are acceptable? It's fairly easy with SoX to simultaneously merge multiple FLACs into a single WAV while also downrezzing. The catch is that the resulting files may still be bigger than 2GB, which will mess you up if the USB stick needs to be formatted as FAT32 (which is common).The playback is NOT gapless, so DSOTM and LOVE get broken between songs for a split second or so. ELS says that while it accepts a 24/96 5.1 .wav file, the system is downsampling it to 24/48, so to save space on a USB stick you may as well downsample yourself before you make your stick.
Here's hoping they aren't limitations of the chip(s).Fix .flac compatibility, fix gapless playback. Nothing critical, but things worth fixing IMHO.
I got the A-Spec trim level. I was going to get the Advance model, but I hated the wheels and the chrome trim. Both have the 3D audio system.Jon, which Acura RDX 2019 trim level did you get?
If I understand correctly 24/48 wav files as flac is not accepted.
What a pain. Does this mean you are redoing all your music into 24/48 wav so that you can actually play them.
