What bit rates do you guys use for your music? Do you use 192 to strike a balance between space and sound, or do you detect a noticeable difference with 256 and use that?

Is 320 a waste, and do you think 128 is complete shit? Wanted to hear some opinions.


Also, is it a good idea to create AAC versions on iTunes to save space?

Thanks!

AAC (iTunes at least) is 256kbps. 320 is practically useless for MOST types of music, especially hip-hop. 320 (& even FLAC) are mainly for genres of music which include a shit ton of instruments.

V0 is easily the best bitrate. It's the perfect balance between quality/size. The scene finally started ripping in V0, thank god.

and yes, 128 is utter dog shit.

v0 is VBR (variable bit rate) .. v0 gives you as much kbps as it needs to per song. it wont give 320 unless that song requires 320kbps to be listened to with full potential. it gives the song the amount of kbps it needs

TY. I'm converting a bunch of my 256+ songs to VBR and it's saving me a bunch of space, making them anywhere from 190-220ish.
