    Dunno, I don't notice much of a difference, if any, between 128k and 320k, even on some pretty decent equipment. I mean, I still rip my content at the highest bitrate out of principle, but in honesty, it's just wasted space.

    Yeah FLAC and hi-bit rates are all well and good, but IMO I can tell much of a difference, I play all my music thru my Warfadales Zeltecs Z1000s with a pretty good amp and I cant really hear a difference in quialty unless you drop from 128 down to 56 or below and 320 doesn't sound any difference. A couple of friends say they can tell the difference, but I can't and I bet many 'ordinary' listeners can't.

    Regards

    All about ears, the music you listen to, and the kit you listen on imo. For instance, I'll happily listen to metal and hard rock at anything above about 160Kbit/s - same for lots of pop and some hip hop. However, when it comes to classical or jazz, I want high quality. I often think "oh crap this songs in 128kbit/s" and when I check in foobar it nearly always is. - once you get used to hearing it in a specific type of music, perhaps you sense it more readily. Certainly though I find a difference between the two. Not so sure about the difference between FLAC and 320Kbit/s MP3's, but I'd take FLAC's just for the hell of it.

    Ah if ye insist then :D

    Hell yea FLAC! Most of my music is FLAC'd CDs so as I then listen to the CD as it originally was and can decompress it at anytime and create the CD, without having to lug around the tons and tons of physical media. CDs are piss poor compared to the HD stuff and then Vinyl. I've heard music engineers complain that they record at 192/32Bit or something, then die a little inside when they have to downsample it for 44/16. Then again, people listen to music on a frikkin portable media player and think that's as good as it gets :rolleyes:

    A modest collection of 3.45Gb. Although, most of it is outdated and not played. All of my music is ripped at 128kbps. I am an absolute perfectionist and I can't stand anything out of the ordinary, and yet 128 suffices...

    Not that I'm an audio-technician of any sorts,
