Hi all wondering what KBPS cd's are. I would rip them with EAC, exact audio copy, and am wonder if it is worth it. I need to know if it is higher than 256 kbps

Yes, that's for all CD's.


They're uncompressed audio data, with a sample rate of 44.1kHz and a bit depth of 16. Multiply those two together, and then multiply that by two for two channels, and you get 1411kbps. That's all bitrate is for uncompressed audio, it's the product of sample rate, bit depth, and channels.

 

For compressed files, bitrate is totally meaningless unless it is used to compare between bitrates of the same lossy codec.

That is the maximum right?

 

My FLAC files vary lower than that

That's because FLAC is compressed.

Does the exact audio copy make it at 1411 kbps or does it lose some

It doesn't lose anything. Hence the name EXACT Audio Copy.
