320kbps Vs. ALAC - Page 8

I don't think that any human can tell the difference between AAC and lossless in a line level matched blind test. I think the people who claim they can haven't done line levelling or are gaming the test.

How are you doing the line level matching?

 

My replaygain shows a 0.06db difference in one of my converted tracks, that's pretty tiny.

I put a preamp in the line to balance the level.

Between lossless and AAC *what*? I mean, you know it's a variable encoder right? Clearly not all amounts of information will produce the same result.
