    The new standard is 192kbps, and this refers to the quality of the rip, or more importantly how it was sampled during the rip. Higher is definitely better.--

    320kbps = CD quality but those files are really, really big. 192kbps is the perfect blend of compression and quality. You really have to have a well trained ear to notice the difference between 192, 256, and 320. However the difference between 192 and 128 is huge in my opinion.--

    If you have ripped or copied music at 128bit & convert it to a higher bitrate it will not improve the sound quality. It has to be ripped or copied at a high bitrate first. Personally i use SoundForge for editing all my music, but it is a very extensive program. It will be very daunting for a newbie to this kind of program.

    Hmm, i&#39;d say that if you&#39;re using normal headphones or have weak speakers (600w and below), you won&#39;t even notice the difference between 128k and 192k... but otherwise, better quality is usually better imho...
