Lossless files compress the song, like a zip file. Everything is inside when you open it. Think of it like folding a piece of paper in fourths. You can open it back up and have all the information that was on the paper.

 

Lossy files compress the song and disregard data from various parts to make it smaller. Not everything is there when you open it. It's like cutting a piece of paper in fourths and not keeping all the pieces. You can never get that piece of paper back entirely and the info it contained is forever lost.

 

Your other post about upconverting video to 1080p is a good example. There weren't  2.1 million pixels to begin with (the number of pixels in a 1080p frame), so these new pixels are imagined by the computer, using various algorithms to turn 1 pixel into 4, and blend, etc... basically making stuff up that doesn't exist. This is the same thing as converting low bitrate 128 or so, to higher bitrate. The computer is just making up information that doesn't exist and is accurate or inaccurate to varying and uncontrollable degrees.

Thanks for the additional Information

Might as well named this thread "hey how big is your epenis?"

 

I keep two libraries, the first is music I actually listen to and the second is music I want saved just in case. I hate scrolling through hundreds of artists I don't remember or listen to.

 

main library

12,597 songs, of that 96.4 percent is flac, 1251 albums, and 390 artists. Almost exactly 400 gigs. The songs that aren't flac are web only releases that aren't available in flac. It's all organized with large album artwork in the folders.

 

The second library is difficult to judge, but it's around 250 gigs. It's mostly flac still with more mp3. It's all unorganized and mixed with the random movie or two. Plus there are a lot of duplicates. I also have a second copy of my music in flac, and yet another copy of my music in v0 mp3 on an external drive.

I only keep my actual playlists listed on Media Monkey. Other than that I'll just wade through my collection if necessary. All my playlists go onto my DX100 and Studio V.

I have approximately 20,000+ songs and counting.
post #84 of 581

62,586 lossless tracks. No MP3s.

 

I generally play on random and constantly suprise myself with stuff I forgot I had.

Seems like you have alot of HDD space

post #90 of 581

I find it funny that nobody voted for Country music in the poll. And also, why don't you have an option for Blues music? And Classical? I could probably go on with the Genre's that you didn't list but I don't want to.
