107? :confused:

 

A year or so ago I downloaded a song that was very difficult to find, and I was wondering why it sounded so horrible. I recently checked the bitrate and it was 64 kbps lol

I have no idea why it was that low. I used XLD to make a [320 kbps targeted] AAC file and it spat that out. It's not like 107 kbps VBR would make much of a difference for this song anyway.

 

Top is FLAC, bottom is 107 kbps VBR AAC.

I am now convinced that GMC's Yukon has the worst sound I have ever heard out of a car. It really re-defined the term 'muffled' to me, because all I can hear is muddy, bloated, fart cannon bass with harsh, piercing, assaulting, ear stabbing highs. Oh and the midrange. Wait, what midrange? The one you can't hear.

YKYAA when you try to convince your friend to buy a new sound system for his own car.

Complex songs benefit from higher bitrates, so I guess the song is very sonically simplistic and only needs 107 to achieve the same quality as 320.

That stax cake is amazing too.

 

xD hell'z yea

 

I have a couple 24bit Albums just to say I have 24bit on hand. but well most of us know 16bit is the way to go... although I own a 32bit dac [AGD NFB 10ES2] but again highest I play is good ole 24bits,

YKYAA When you found out that your local newspaper wrote an article about audio and you were soooooo happy but your happiness ended so soon after finish reading frown.gif http://www.bt.com.bn/unplugged/2012/03/07/cellphones-should-be-audiophile-grade

And

YKYAA when you excitedly jumped up from your couch when you saw a local online store selling audiophile headphones at a more resonable price than others and offers AKG K612 Pro and AKG K712 Pro ^_^

When I tell my co worker she can't listen to my iem because they're custom molded to my ear canals.  

 

I've been reading Galaxy Note 3 reviews and the first thing I look for is if there are comments about the audio quality from the headphone jack.

You know you're an audiophile when you read Objective-C as Objective 2. >_<

Ykyaa when you spend an hour explaining music format and bit-rate theory to a friend on Facebook.
