Music files supported

I have a 2014 Cruz and about to re-lease a 2017. My biggest drawback and concern is that there is no CD player and not even an option. I hate mp3s because of the sound (yes, I CAN tell the difference). I've tried listening to 320 rips and still can't stand them. It can't be that hard for Chevy to upload and update to the entertainment system to read WAV or FLAC files.... This is extremely important to me and I know most people don't care. However, if the ability to read other lossless music files is already in, then the option is there for those of us that can tell the difference. If most don't use those files, it shouldn't matter that, at least, the ability to read other files is there. People, like myself, who want full quality digital sound are losing out on A LOT! Either make the CD player an option or add the lossless music files to be read by the software. PLEASE!

Try using your USB port or your Phone. You can always enjoy XM although the fidelity is similar to MP3s.
Exactly. I can't stand the sound quality. That is why I was wondering why WAV or FLAC or any other lossless files aren't read by the current entertainment system. I can only listen to talk/news or classic radio shows on SirisXM.... Music sounds terrible.
My suggestion is to load up a few USB drives and head for a dealer. I do know my G1 will read the AAC files created when I ripped CDs using Apple's iTunes. I'm not sure about the lossless variants.
From the MYlink site for Chevrolet cars.

Chevrolet MyLink supports a large variety of song file formats, including MP3, WMA and AAC. It also supports the following playlist files: M3U standard and extended, iTunes, PLS, WAX, ASX and RMP.
Also have MP3 files on Flash drive in my new 2016 2nd G and it sounds great. Some don't sound good but most do. Also XM seems to be fine in the car most of time.
You're hooped unless you want to plug in a media player via the AUX input. I also tried WMA lossless but that would not work either. Only lossy codecs are seen by the head unit.
