    What Audio Codec do you use

    Since this is an audio forum who I am sure you want quality in your audio, what audio codec do you use.

    I use FLAC and this is why b/c of frequency is the same as WAV(CD)

    Source WAV:


    Source Converted to MP3 320kbps:


    Source Converted to MP3 128kbps:


    Source Converted to FLAC (NO CHANGE):

    Re: What Audio Codec do you use

    I find that there's not much difference between store bought CDs and good lossless files on a usb/ burned cd, most difference i hear is the extra detail on the trebles but its very negligible unless you have an extremely picky/trained ear.

    Re: What Audio Codec do you use

    MP3 320kbps

    Gives you the best of both worlds. Saves space and anything about a certain 2xx (I forget the exact kbps) kbps the human ear cant detect a difference.

    Re: What Audio Codec do you use

    You don't like 320kbps MP3 because it cuts off above 20.5KHz? You must have some super sensitive hearing if you can tell the difference with frequencies that high...

    Also notice the filesize...sorry but I have wayyy too much music to have my songs be 40mb each...converting to MP3 cut your file size to 1/4 the original, much more practical with mostly no audible difference.

    I am sure its more a phycologic thing. I just think flac is louder than mp3
