I am going to start a collection of CDs so I can import them to my computer in ALAC in order to achieve higher quality, but Im not exactly sure what it does.
Im aware that ALAC is Apple Lossless, thus loses no quality from the original copy. But what Im not sure of is what the quality coming from a CD is, now what the quality is when it translates to ALAC.
Can anyone tell me what the bit rate from a typical CD comes in at? Or what the bit rate the ALAC file would be once I actually import them?
I only ask because someone on a different site told me that a 320 bit rate is "Chump change" compared to some high quality sources. And that one could easily find FLAC or WAVE files that come in at 1000 kbps?
