Once you Go FLAC you can Never go Back! - Page 3

post #21 of 72
320kb/s .mp3 is usually fine for me.

The few CDs I ripped as FLAC sound pretty damn good though.

The main reason for using FLAC is that it's completely open source.
WM-anything isn't very good. Their compression techniques aren't that great. Ever tried opening a WMV on an open source player?... doesn't work so well when skipping through. I avoid WM whenever possible.

I can tell quite a big difference between 320mp3 and any loseless codec.

If you want some great music encoded as FLAC, check out magnatune - They offer free MP3 full-length streams (with a watermark at the end (that doesn't cut into the music) on the site, then if you like it, you can buy (and choose the price) and then get in a variety of formats including FLAC, and then give 2 or 3 people (I forget the limit) a free copy of the album. Great stuff. I'm a big fan of Rocket City Riot & Very Large Array.

They also have no DRM, anywhere, The musicians get a fair cut (50%) of the sale price, they support FOSS audio playing projects, and loads of other awesome reasons.

They are the way the music industry should be.

FLAC sounds much cleaner and clearer on my ATH-A700's, but it takes alot of space after you convert 100+CD's.
