Can I get better than 320kbps sound quality? - Page 4

post #46 of 134

better dynamic range, definitely.

The best sound comes when you convert your FLAC files to 96kbps and back to FLAC.  Do this 7 times and real magic starts happening.

Err sorry HynchSidrick, that means your suggestion of converting from FLAC to MP3 at 320kbps isn't even possible for OP.

Speaking of OP: have all your questions been answered?

What? Of course it has to come from a lossless file, but there is a loss of quality regardless.

I just delete the files (so they are essentially 0kbps) and re-rip them about a dozen times. The CD needs some burn in time before it rips properly.

O... K...

I'm glad we have serious audiophiles like yourself to clear these things up.

EDIT: I'm sorry, but I'm now having a real hard time distinguishing between the sarcastic and serious posts in this thread. Maybe I need some higher quality glasses.

Lol, before the mp3 invention any audio format was better. Lol # 2...and after the mp3 invention, the same audio formats are still better. wink_face.gif

Yes, but it depends on the song, or the genre of the song.

 

I realize metal and rock benefits a lot more than ballads or jazz on ALAC. The difference is huge.

Up grade your system or just sell them off, if you can't hear any difference between lossless and lossy.

post #60 of 134
The difference between high bitrate lossy and lossless is more a matter of what you believe than what you can actually hear.

I like how people believe the difference is greater with the type of music they personally listen to than the types they don't.
