Codders this could be your chance to shine!
Haven't ripped for a long time - just "obtain" them as MP3 files!!! Don't really bother with the MP3 players either - just use my IPAQ.
Good charts showing the difference in bitrates etc and the losses you get.
A lot depends on what Codecs you use as well.
To be honest the best quality is to use the same old system your ears hear - a very clever system with infinite bit rate - what is it called - analogue!!!
Funnily enough they are now looking at analogue again as a way of storing more data etc onto hard drives and cds etc.
Digital is way over rated - all or nothing is the best way to describe it.
