I just happened to have that card laying around. I don't see why preferring the sound quality of one music player app over another means that I should go back to primitive technology like a CD player?
Sound quality is subjective and impossible to make a fact claim about. Then again, the only person so far who specifically stated that he tried both programs found Pi Core to be "colored" .vs Volumio. How many other people here have actually tried both to be able to make a fair comparison?

Who said that?
Sound quality is subjective and impossible to make a fact claim about.
What is objective, however, is understanding how to use a device optimally instead of thoroughly crippling it as you have (found in another post of yours).
Do you have any interest in hearing the best results?
So what are you saying?
I install LMS on my computer and it will sound completely different or are there other charges I need to make?
It seems you haven't been monitoring any number of threads here which speak to what works best:
1. Use the PiCorePlayer as a player only. Stripped down at that.
2. Feed RPi with battery (I use Jockery Giant ) or linear supply.
3. Use Logitech Media Server on a server only to do the heavy lifting and support drive(s). Naturally, both RPi and server must share network connectivity. Which means adding another player is a snap. I have six players accessing mine for either audio or video content.
4. Configure a few settings with each both for best results.
5. Settings for LMS include setting Database Memory Config to "maximum" and Server Priority = High (I use -16, but exact value likely isn't critical). Just ensure server is not always busy doing something else.
Web Control--> Settings--> Advanced--> Performance
6. Settings for RPi include using memory for 600k buffer to play from RAM along with disabling HDMI and declocking processor to save power. Just yesterday, I relinked posts for Ivan here .
Doing so will substantially lower noise and provide improved sound quality. Setting those parameters really shouldn't take more than about ten minutes.
