And only idiots use 320kbps. Waste of space and nothing VBR can't do. The reason people use 320kbps all the time is the way most media players and rippers are designed, with a stupid slider bar with one side saying POOR and at the other end HIGH QUALITY 320kbps, so uninformed people will always rip at 320kbps.
92Kbps isn't great quality. I use the highest bit rate I can get. 128Kbps minimum, 256Kbps is ideal imo. Although, I use 320 when I can and even stream ALAC to my iPhone.

I have a feeling its 192kbps.

192 is a common number for ripping.... 92 is odd...

I can fit 33% more songs than you on my iPod while retaining the same level of quality of a 320kbps file. Care to show us how you got 5%?

Yeah, like a phone has speakers that produce CD quality sound right?

ALAC is Apple's version of FLAC. Lossy will always be lossy, you can't make something out of nothing. Why you need LOSSLESS audio on a iPhone is anyone's guess.
Shhhhh!

Of course they don't. I use headphones. Yes I know, I was just saying. I'll take the highest quality I can get. I wasn't meaning you can rip MP3's to ALAC lol.

Why do I need ALAC on my iPhone? Because it gives me force powers.

92Kb/s is way too small IMO, I could tell the difference between it and 128Kb/s on my Galaxy S II and my old HTC Dream, and as for VBR vs 320? Well, sorry, but in this day of massive HDDs, I don't care about a potential 5GB saved.

You obviously like to assume things.

I have an 8 GB Sony Mp3 player, use 320kb, have something in the neigborhood of 550 songs on it and STILL have 2.6 GB left. 550 songs x 4min is something like 36 hrs of music. Anyone needing 33% more space is just a digital packrat. Simple as that. They are people who like throwing every single song from every single cd in the collection on their Mp3 player just to have it, in much the same way a hoarder saves a 6 month old rotted Ice cream container.

In 1998 I would have agreed with you. In 2011, I could care less. I have at least 10 games I haven't played in over a year, each taking up 2x the space I'd save by going VBR. Hell, the GAMESAVES from games like The Witcher were taking up almost as much as my whole mp3 collection.

I use 320kbps, therefore you just called me an idiot. You're a meanie.

320kbps approaches the point where I can't tell the difference between it and lossless using crap speakers. I can't stand anything below it, though.
