Jeff, fabulous!

Thank you!

You mentioned ripping your CDs at a higher level onto your hard drive.  What 
do you use?  I understand the usual is 128, as you mentioned for XM and I 
believe that is the default for a lot of rippers, but I've heard people say 
they prefer 160 or even 192.  I don't know if it is the cheap in me that 
imagines it or real, but it seems when I have tried 192 things sound a bit 
too sharp and artificial.  I don't know if it is really possible for the ear 
to discern such a difference.  I do not have super hearing or high-end 

Thanks again!

Eric SS
