I'd like to listen to my iTunes music (especially lossless) in the car and on the go.
I was waiting for a 256GB option from Apple, not particularly for the iPhone 7.
With the iPhone 7 it will still be a hassle to pass a digital signal to an amplifier (plus I'm tired of the price tag Apple imposes for just some extra memory).
Suppose I use instead a 256GB microSDXC card, providing the ultimate portability. I understand that by using an SDXC rather than an iPhone (or the less-than-very-interesting iPod Touch) I would lose the
Plays and the
Last Played counts. But that's about it.
This has surely been asked many times before. I wish Apple made it possible to sync from iTunes to a device that provides digital audio out (there are several options on the market), but they have zero incentive (and much to lose) by adding such a facility, or even making it easy to do so.
My question is then: The state of the art, as I understand it, in September 2016, is to:
- Export from iTunes a playlist (one whose size does not exceed the SDXC's capacity).
- Use rsync (which can be easily installed through MacPorts) to sync just the changes.
Step 2 is pretty fast. But it's tedious to repeat Step 1. Can one do better?
