If you're ripping to an uncompressed format and seeing higher bitrates, there is something wrong with the way you are ripping the CD. Check the settings of your ripping program and make sure that it isn't resampling, for example.

Its EQ is flexible enough to allow cutting frequencies rather than boosting, and it also has a pre-cut feature that reduces overall gain so that if you are boosting particular frequencies, you still have headroom to spare.
Quote: Originally Posted by tinseljim Not using EQ makes most sense for headphones but less sense for speakers. This is because the room in which your speakers are located may have either standing waves or resonant frequencies which will distort the music naturally. The Fletcher-Munson equal loudness contours apply equally to headphone listening as they do to speaker listening. EQ can be used to compensate for the natural tendency of the ear to...

Love the way you go out of your way to make the point that the ad is for a gay dating service (including drawing a giant red arrow pointing to the word "gay") and then pretend that your objection is to any dating site.

Quote: Originally Posted by Awah I do exactly that!

I used to think the same way. It turns out that I just had some poorly-encoded files, and that I had mistakenly attributed the problem to the bitrate rather than the...
