    the point of having lossless format isn't really the difference in what you hear, its the fact that if you wanted to encode into a different format in the future, you can do so from an original source, with no quality loss. who knows what formats the future holds...

    I dont know anything about 320kbps mp3, but that is the reason why people like lossless.

    So you speak for all lossless enthusiasts now? I can distinguish between qualities of lossy and lossless music ... And yes, it does serve useful for backing up and ripping from vinyl.

    I used to be an MP3 guy back when bandwidth was expensive and FLAC wasn't that widespread. Times have changed and today I download almost solely FLAC encoded music. The difference between FLAC and MP3 (even well encoded one) is huge. As an exercise, try encoding a disk in both FLAC and high bitrate MP3, then listen to both consecutively using quality speakers. I'm certain you'll notice the difference in the richness of the sound, the high frequencies and so on.

    @predateur:
    No, FLAC is a lossless music format. You can encode any music (originating from vynil or anything else) in FLAC.

    dont bullshit, they have done studies. Above 256kbps no one can tell the difference. 192kbps, some experts can tell the difference.
    Guess this country:
    -Child porn is legal to possess.
    -Home of lolicon & enjo kosai
    -Subways are littered with "Warning: Perverts lurking" signs
    -Has women only subway cars because of the high sexual assault rates
    -Cartoon child porn is a $6 billion industry
    -90% of child porn on the internet is from this country
    -Ranked equally with Cambodia and Ethiopia for prostitution

    Are you using Walmart-brand speakers or something? With a decent sound system, headphones, a good sound card, and a good ear you can.

    just of curiosity, which 7.1 creative and sound card do u use ?

    i use creative gigaworks s750 and xfi platinum.

    i definitely tell the difference and i believe that even a deaf,
    would be .

    btw, u should listen to music in a 2.1 speakers configuration.

    If you listen music only at your computer you dont need lossless music. But if you want listen music on hi-fi or encode to other formats, flac is the best solution.
    For example mp3 256 kbps encode from flac sounds better than 256 kbps encode form 320 kbps.
