I use .WAV for about 3 years.

I still buy original CDs and rip into .WAV for my own listening.

And no, I stopped using MP3 since then.

MP3 in my opinion, due to it's low bitrate the sound quality
is very inferior as compare with ACC (iTunes) and Ogg Vobis (used by Spotify).
Till today ACC still survived since most iTunes music are encoded in ACC.

My collection some have move to 24bit/96KHZ FLAC, however
depending on your audio setup.
Not necessary need to get HD music unless you can tell the difference
as well as your DAP must be able to support HD music.

Handphone at the most CD quality for most expect Sony Xperia.
FLAC is my prefer file format, in the past I used to rip in WAV but
issue with WAV is lack of album art.

oh i didnt know spotify uses ogg vobis
yea, some AACs are all those iTunes exclusive LOL
well my DX50 can handle all of them, but FLACS are on the soft side,
so when the next rack is an mp3 there spike in volume/amplitude

i find my DX50 abit lag and heavy hence im looking out....

not sure if the sony mid year sale 10% is worth it though.
nonetheless the cayin N3 can definitely fit my shorts pocket, shanling m1 pictures look like it can too

i dunno what else i should consider liao at the price

Heard that iPhone and Android playback differs in quality too. No matter that hardware use. What's the case?

This I got on comment cuz depend on the Manufacturer.
I compare my old iPhone and my Xperia phone, Sony still
wins hands down not to mention support for HD music.
