Both CD and USB, are just the data source. They don't do processing like an iPod.
So, I feel there would not be any difference in SQ when the same file is played from either a USB or CD.


I prefer using the USB (much more easier to use than CD). Also, CDs might skip when the roads are bad.

Pioneer all model sounds the same right from 3050 to 6050 when connected with same set of amp,subwoofer,speakers.

Alpine different models sounds different.Cd's are much better than using USB and external drives.

Currently 3100,5100,7200 MKII,and Ecslipse AVX5000 is available in Mumbai.

Eclipse AVX5000 ( I have started saving to buy this one )

I would suggest you install what you have and test the output and then tryanother options.
