Yes I compleley agree. I have some songs in my library that I can't tell if teh person made a fake, didn't encode/rip it right, or the recording itself just sucks :'(
Japanese OST's are (slightly)different in how you tell FLAC from 320. I find that for the most part. Their overal sound quality. like vocals and stuff stay the same. there are some artifacts in 320 sometimes that give it away. but the biggest one. is background. the background sound seperation, instrumetns whatever, and the hiss. the majority of my 320 OST's all have these problems. my FLAC's don't.
Example of bad songs in my library:
Last Night; Skillet very bad hissing at beginning, every version has this
Iridescent; Linkin Park Small pops,crackles in the sound. happens when their voices get really high. might be my DAC or headphones...but it shouldn't be. I ahve the HFI 580's and Shure SRH440's and it happens out of my computers VIA 1708S, my ipods Cirrus Logic CS4398, and whatever better Cirrus Logic and amp is in my macbook pro
