Which USB flash drive is best for storing music files?


Recommended Posts

I'd like to know which USB flash drive is going to the best job with music files to be played either in my car in the usb port or in the back of one of my powered speakers that have a USB port for playing music.  I realize that some may say that any flash drive will do the job.  But surely there are good, better, best in this category.

 

 

Thanks!

Best in what regard?

I really don't know much about USB flash drives.  And I've hardly ever used one for anything.  So, best in regards to everything about it.  Overall quality and how it affects the sound of music when I plug it into the usb port in my car, my stereo or the back of a powered speaker.

Buy name brands.

Should not matter.

Which brand and speed do you recommend?

 It used to matter when playing 24/192 files some years back, with some cheap types stuttering.

A good all round USB memory stick is SanDisk Ultra

 

How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.
