Question to JBL system owners & audiophiles

Post by omegaman » Wed Aug 07, 2019 3:28 pm

I am expecting delivery of an Excel Hybrid with the JBL system next month.

Could you tell me if it plays FLAC files and if there is a maximum capacity for the USB drive as I hope to use at least a 128gb stick?

I've personally never try it. Sound is not "full" IMHO, it's more like streaming quality than high-end. So I didn't bother. There's no clear statement if flac is supported though...
USB disk long as it's FAT32, manual says "File formats: FAT12/16/32 (Windows)" so you'll have no problems with 128GB.

My car has the best possible Toyota audio that was possible in 2017. I don't know what it's official model as they change from one country to another and from year to year. However, it is a JBL with nine speakers. In Finland the package is / was called Toyota Touch and Go plus with navigation system.

But back to business.
My Toyota Touch music player will also play the FLAC music, I have tested it personally.
