  1. I use iTunes on my PC which runs Windows 10. My questions have to do with the settings under the Playback tab under Preferences. I know that under the General Tab, I can import CDs using settings such as Apple Lossless Encoder, MP3, and AAC. My questions are: 1. Do the audio settings under the Playback tab just alter sound while the audio track is playing and not alter the audio file itself or its properties? 2. If I make audio adjustments under the Playback tab, will that impact the audio properties or sound quality of audio tracks or their import settings as they are ripped from my CDs or will they permanently alter the audio properties (bit-rate, sample-rate, hertz, etc.) or sound quality of my music files already stored on my computer? I am asking these questions because I intend to put my audio CDs into storage at my local storage unit (which is climate controlled) after I have ripped them to ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Compression). I want to retain and protect the original sound quality from the CDs both so I can create lossy copies from the original source for iPhone and iPad while traveling and so I do not have to dig out the CDs again to regain the original sound quality. Thanks.
  2. I am setting up a Synology NAS to store music files. It will be accessed by my Mac Mini. Any suggestions on set up? I'll be using itunes and probably Jriver and Roon.
  3. XLD - Bit Perfect - iTunes settings.

    Hi Based on what I have found on this site, I have adjusted the settings of the software I am running on my Macbook Pro 13' model summer 2012. I am planning on using XLD to rip CD's and playback via Bit Perfect / iTunes. For now, all music will be stored on the local hard drive of my Macbook. I am using an optical toslink/SPDIF connection between my MacBook and my BelCanto DAC (C5i). I am looking for feedback on the settings I made in XLD and what settings I should change in iTunes, although I guess that the iTunes settings do not really matter anymore since I am using Bit Perfect. For Bit Perfect, I simply followed the recommended settings highlighted in the manual. You can find the manual on :BitPerfect: Manual You can find screenshots of my XLD settings below. As per the RIP strategy published on this site, I am ripping to FLAC for archiving and AIIF for playback. I am looking forward to your feedback and suggestions. Once I have your feedback, I will start ripping my CD's TrappistMonk
