I have quite a lot at 160, but the vast majority are 192 and above. With drives getting larger I've recently been ripping everything at 320 though.
50% are 192, 30% are 320, and the other 20% are either 160, 128, or some weird bitrate. (nothing below 128 tho, because it'd sound terrible) Even 128 isn't very good.
Mostly 192 and above.
When I rip i usually rip at vbr260-320.
Some are 128, not many anymore, and nothing below that.
128 normally, but i had to change them all to 80 so theyd fit on my mp3 player
maybe im going deaf or something but i really cant tell the difference between 320 and 128 and on an mp3 player 80's fine cos of all the background noise you get anyway
Most of mine re ripped at 192-320. I listen to a lot of music and anything below 192 sounds horrible to me.
Still got some 128 from the old Napster days, that I'm slowly replacing with 192. Oh, and I've got some 160, but usually it's OK when it's a live recording or something.
The human ear can't appreciate the difference between 192 and anything of a higher quality. Fact.
I've ripped Green Day's Warning at 192 and 320 and there's definitely a fuller sound on the 320 - I can certainly hear it in the car, but those Pioneer 6x9s make almost everything sound good... except Radio1, because the BBC haven't got the best producers lol.Originally Posted by Barbarossa
It's probably your player or phones then.
