I think you're talking about bit rate, which on a CD is 1411.2 kbit/s.

16-bit * 44100 samples/s * 2 channels

A "CD-quality" MP3 is usually 128 kbit/s.

A CD-quality MP3 by my standards is a MINIMUM of 192 kbit/s, and I only encode MP3's using LAME.

Lately though, I've been thinking about replacing my MP3 encoder with OGG.

Same place you get MP3's, just select a better format. If you are suggesting pirating, I can't help you there.

You can download then convert to WAV by right-clicking on the song. I don't know how much it actually helps, but I can hear a slight improvement.

Just make sure you have plenty of space for all that extra data.
