    Ogg vorbis

    Can someone briefly explain to me how v0, v1, v2 compare? I never used ogg but I need to have the knowledge for a friend and I can't find information on which is better then the other and whatnot. I know Ogg uses vbr instead of cbr which is a more optimal way of compressing the file.

    JH Audio JH-13 PRO impressions thread

    I have picollino and TWag and the TWag is pretty much a perfect upgrade for the 13's it adds clarity and impact and just shines. A lot of people have spoken about it in the whiplash subforum.
