Man 5.1 flac playback would be a dream. I'm guessing from the comments it doesn't do 88.2 or 96khz flac's? It would be a pain to downconvert them all to 48. I'm still enjoying my 2012 Hyundai Genesis which plays any kind of dvd-audio I throw at it, even burned with Imgburn. I wish the car had a bit more bass, but other than that the audio system is enjoyable. I'll have to check out the new cars coming out, I won't replace the Genesis until something better comes out to play my surround collection.

I just happened to have my drive right here as I was updating it. Here are the stats:

500Gb Drive, 465Gb usable
189Gb Used - 131 24/48 5.1 albums (some doubles included)
276Gb Free

So yeah, I would guess maybe 300 albums
I bought the same drive but in the 1TB version I have 328 albums on it currently with 502GB used and 428GB available. Total usable space 931GB Those are all 5.1 FLAC - no stereo files

I remember being excited about the 6-DVD-A changer in the 2004 TL!

Is there a slow lag time with the directory? I have only tested 10 albums on a small thumb drive on my buddy's car, we were very impressed. I am so ready to be able to do this when a get a car switch, (probably 2 years out).

I built my own, when I was still single and had a Delica 4wd van, but that's what an avid inventor does isn't it,
(as no one can be expected to know how many surround / main ( All-Around™ ) channels that I want to work with).

In my testing room / ex-studio now house
(it's long since been converted into a home by the presence of a female counterpart - to the single old inventor who ruled his own castle - when alone a few years ago)
;-)
As for speakers in anything ..
25 mains - (plus an additional seven sub-woofers) is my best so far with a small finite number of just 88 speakers inside 64 cabinets, running the 25 bare / full frequency master channels

Youtube has a view of it "playing" - the tune of the YouTube national anthem - Dreams(es)cape 007

Apart from the old Delica - I haven't found anything since that died, to put a LOT of speakers inside
(oh and my new life partner hates my musical creations - or loud music of any sort - pity but - as she's a nice woman apart from that - and a few other foibles) ;-)
