I'm listening to Art Blakey right now, and I don't notice the codec too much. But I'm also on the builtin speakers.

I'll A/B FLAC vs Opus with my nice headphones tomorrow so that I can make sure I understand what I'm missing.

Like, this is tolerable.

I'm not hearing any overt artifact. I'm not missing much.

It feels... smaller? Like, the sounstage has been compressed. There's less room between the notes. There's no air in it.

But it sounds at least as good as what I stream from google play music.
