Technically not "CD quality" if the USB stick is uploading AAC or mp3 formats in their typical sampling formats, but likely good enough to sound much better than "FM" or even "HD-FM" music, depending on the quality of your "rips." Heads up on using the HDD for music storage: it is a royal PITA to edit/modify uploaded songs for corrections/deletions/etc. For this reason alone, it is desirable to play your tunes directly from the USB stick, which can be easily removed for said changing. Directly playing from a USB stick has limitations as well, but they pale in comparison to HDD storage, at least in my experience with a sizeable mp3 collection that undergoes modifications on a monthly basis.
