Just use any other lossless format. FLAC is only special because the file sizes are smaller than other lossless formats. Apple Lossless, WMA, or WAV will sound just as good, just take up a bit more space, hell a 320kbps mp3 will be nearly, if not completely, indistinguishable from the lossless version. Storage space is cheap though, so that's not an issue. There are plenty of head units that play FLAC, but none with the same amount of DSP built in as the 80PRS.

No, FM os closer to 128, or even less. FLAC is lossless, there is no loss in audio data at all. For most recordings, 328kbps is indistinguishable from lossless. Give this test a few tries and see for yourself.

Add to that you’re in a car and the moment you start the engine and start driving the differences become even less noticeable, if they were noticeable to begin with, which is unlikely.
