    Re: So where is Porsche

    If you're going to use an iPod to transport music for "final presentation" then you're in trouble right there. Again, it's for portable use, compress it all you want, you won't be able to hear the difference in a road car.

    Re: So where is Porsche

    In a 997S at over 3-4,000 RPM, the amount of noise polution is significant. Whole bands of audio frequency seem masked or cancelled out by the engine.

    I'm not complaining, but I don't believe that under real world driving conditions the sound quality in a Porsche is in any way comparable to a home listening experience and default iPOD encoding would surely suffice.

    Certainly when parked with the engine off the Bose system is terrific sounding, though still probably not quite as neutral as a mid level 'enthusiast' home system. But I for one don't hang out in my parked car very much!

    iPOD, for me, is simply about not having to play the same damned 6 CD's over and over or go through the pallava of swapping them out.

    Wi-fi and satellite (and maybe also WiMAX and 3G/4G) connected hard drives in cars for both audio and video are on their way and will likely succeed since they would be manufacturer sold and integrated and offer the potential for subscription revenue streams.

    But I'm not holding my breath even for iPOD integration by Porsche, which seems particularly weak in this area: lousy phone implementation, no satellite radio, etc. I imagine their relatively low production volume gives them less leverage with telematics vendors.

    BTW, if you want to get an idea of what is planned in the automotive market on an entertainment level, an article in this week's EE Times may be of interest (and I think you may find other articles in their automotive design archive on HD design and implementation for cars):
