    I am pretty sure, verified by a close friend with lots of time spent in my car that the sound quality is MUCH improved over 7.1. It seems the Dolby has been refined. The sound seemes much clearer too me. Anyone second this? I have the upgraded sound system btw...

    I noticed an improvement with the basic system as of 7.1 (2.34.100) a month ago. Since then the 7.1 security release and 8.0 (2.36.108) seem about the same.

    Yes I second. I posted same in the 8.0 thread. [email protected] I did notice significant improvement between last dot release on 7.1 and 8.0. And yes I also noticed improvement as noted between earlier 7.1 releases and the last 2. I mostly listen to Slacker vs use a USB, so maybe that's why others didn't notice much difference with this release. Maybe there is some difference in the coding now used for Slacker now that wouldn't be relevant if you were using a USB.

    I mostly use slacker, but I find the improvement to be on all sources.

    On all media sources? Just for streaming?

    Before Ver8 there was a selector for "best" audio quality on the slacker app sign in screen. I haven't seen it yet in Ver8 but am possibly suspecting that it is defaulted to "best" now. Sometimes when I would check in Ver 7.1 and earlier it would reset itself to the lower audio quality and I would have to log-out, log-in with "best" selected

    I generally stream music from my phone (bt), agree that sound quality has increased noticeably.
