I'm sitting here, listening to music 'Ripped' to my HD ... at the same time Ripping more CDs.

Well, I thought it was good ... can do the same in Linux, just surprised I can do the same in Windows. :D

Only tip I can think of is to use WMA unless you're using an MP3 player that can't use them. The quality is better for the same size :) About 2/3 size of MP3s at the same quality.

Compatibility wise MP3 is your best bet. If you plan to rip a huge quantity of music you will not be able to go back. Wma quality as explained by Ian is about right.

Variable bit rate MP3's can be very useful where you set the min to say 64 and max to 320, this way the file size is much smaller and quality is same as you would get on fixed bitrate at higher numbers.

Thanks for that Quad ... compatability is not an issue, I only have a PC. Just get fedup plonking CDs into the drive. ;)

Upside down, right side up, or sideways, no problems. The better thing to do however is to have the tweeters in line with your ears.:thumb:

The small two speakers that you have would be having tweeters, they should be in line with your ears, they produce all the high frequencies and the sub takes care of low frequencies. The sub can be placed anywhere due to non directionality of sound waves the higher frequencies however are directional.

If they are OK you need not change them but if you think they have aged, you may consider some 2.1 Logitechs.

Now if you could point me in the right direction for a new pair of ears ... I have hearing loss ... no High or Low frequencies left ...

I was merely saying things about high and low frequencies for the benefit of others. Your speakers hardly produce any low or high frequency in real terms anyway


However, they should be producing more of both low and high then what you are capable of hearing, any change in the speaker will not benefit you. Stay put, you can spend your money more wisely. ;)

We have an entire CD collection, 9 straight days of music, ripped to our 200Gb media centre in 320k MP3

I believed this to be CD quality... am i wrong?

Is there a quality BETTER than 320k MP3 without exceeding 13mb per track?
