Don't get too excited if you care about sound quality. From the announcements so far, it doesn't support any lossless audio codecs. I.e. no AppleLossless, no Windows Media Lossless, or even FLAC. Only WMA, ACC, and MP3 - and they haven't stated which bitrates are supported.

If you use the car to rip from a CD-Audio to the hard drive, it'll only do WMA 128kbps, which is a ludicrously low bitrate IMHO....
