Hi guys, newbie here. Music is a big thing for me, and I usually spend most of my time listening to music in the car. I want to increase the audio quality in my car, but I'm not sure which route to take.
My car already has an aftermarket display that was installed by the previous owner. I've noticed that it has an equalizer but I've never played around with it. The speakers have also been replaced with some JBL ones, but that's about it.
I understand that a wired connection is going to sound much better than Bluetooth. What cable would be best for an android user?
Would it be worth it to invest in a portable DAC? Or should my first priority be to install better hardware?
I primarily listen to metal, so if there are any products that are geared towards that kind of sound, that would be preferable. Also, budget isn't entirely an issue, but for anything that I won't be able to use in my next car, I don't want to spend more than $1,000 :)
