I can't fully explain it mark and I really don't know if my little hatchback is the best place to listen to music or the worst place but lossless discrete surround such as hi rez Dvd-A in the car with a good quality playback system is just f ing Awesome. I often will take the long way home just to listen to a whole album in its entirety.
I can play my music as loud as I want, I don't have any time delay parameters set up on my system , don't care for em, nobody ever rides with me to and from work so I don't know or care what it sounds like in the back seat because I can easily differentiate each channel, and it makes me feel like I am floating down the road without a single care. Every day I watch these jackasses zip in and out of lanes on the freeway like they are fighting for pole position at the Indy 500, never passing a thought of just how dangerous their actions are, and I just don't give half a shit as long as they keep the hell away from me, cuz right now I am digging the groove on some Chicago, or The Doobies or the Doors or Pink Floyd and nothing else matters but the music and getting where I need to be safely. pardon the pun but, it's truly a gas, highly recommended.
