Understanding Lossless Music Streaming Bit Rates
Nice bit of info there. Had I not seen this I might have missed that FLAC-related error.
Assume for a moment that a user has a collection containing the usual mix of country, rock, classical, etc. Assuming someone were starting with a CD and wanted to pick the best bit rate would most users notice the difference between 256 kbps and 320 kbps even with a decent audio system?
No, I don't think many users would notice. Also, in the article I mention in my article, the comparison is between 320 kbps MP3 and 256 kbps AAC. The latter is a better, more efficient codec, and sounds better, so the AAC should sound better than the higher-bit rate MP3.
I've got tracks in both AAC and MP3 along with a few tracks in AIFF/WAV. I've thought about going back and re-ripping the MP3s but I'm just not sure I want to tackle that time consuming task.
