Hello! New RC 350 F Sport Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am an owner of a new 2016 RC 350 F Sport purchased from Lexus Of Perth.

Only issues I had was putting audio onto a USB and getting it to play, AND display all album artwork. I am going to make a detailed post on how to do that for anyone else whom may have struggled with the same as I believe the Mark Levinson and the standard audio system player is similar across a few models.

Briefly, only use a flashdrive USB (external USB drives I tried did not work at all)

MP3's compressed to 320kbps play brilliant on the RC350  Mark Levinson. Won't support a higher rate. I assume the ML uses a better Digital Analog Converter than an ipod.

Download an album cover 200 x 200 pixels (use fee app called Album Art Downloader (Maybe 400 x 400 works but 500 x 500 pixels does not). Album Art Downloader will search for album art and download a pic named folder.jpg. Put this file inside each music folder.

Free Audio Player/Application called Foobar2000 will manage your album art and merge album pic into each MP3 file.

And that's about it. You won't need an ipod anymore. The Lexus reads the USB which initially takes a minute or so and then you can browse, random play and see all album artwork.

Hope this helps anyone who wants quality audio from a USB without using an Ipod AND see all your album covers or any pictures you want to associate with the tune..
