we rip our cd's to mp3 not wav or other file,why,smaller file size and quality as good as cd, wav and other files are big and the quality of audio is not better than mp3.
HANDY ANDY VIDEO ON DIGITAL FILES
WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER FOR MP3 FILES PLAYBACK AND CD RIPS
it comes with windows (free)
SOME ROUGH CALCULATIONS ABOUT MP3's
Say cd file 30MB mp3 file 3MB 5 minute duration
60 x 5 = 300 sec
30MB x 8 = 240Mb
240Mb / 300 sec = 800Kb per sec audio
3MB x 8 = 24Mb
24Mb / 300 sec = 80Kb per sec audio
800kb / 80kb = 10
the cd file is 10 times the mp3 file
do i hear a difference in sound quality?hell no not me!
some may do i dont know?
to me cd = mp3 or very close
DIGITAL RADIO vs MP3's
Almost same streams but digital radio goes through further modulation and transmission for that reason i consider it inferior to Mp3
I've tried downloading mp3s from sites with lot's of problems
I've downloaded exec youtube converters/downlowders with lot's of problems
after months of failure
i found a site that does the conversion on their servers and you simply downlowd the mp3
this is a better converter
oh people i'm in heaven!
anything you could wish for is free as mp3
AUDIO SYSTEM OF THE FUTURE
***source: computer and digital files(MP3s)
there is no need to use a DAC if your computer has line
level jack,usually the jack is connected to an internal amplifier
in most computers,to bypass this amplifier is with a
USB-DAC with line level jacks,the problem is the amplifier
not the internal PCM computer-DAC
there is no need to use high POWER
must be GOOD
THE FOUR PILLARS OF GOOD SOUND
1) Low Noise (all,source,amplifier,speaker)
2) Low Distortion (all,source,amplifier,speaker)
3) Extended Frequency (all,source,amplifier,speaker)
4) Tonal Balance (all,source,amplifier,speaker)
The speakers of our systems need to break in for at least 100 hours of playing music,then you'll notice a more natural sound,this is because the drivers of the speakers are new and require adjacement,the amplifiers however don't require any break in and are always ready for great sound.
CD dynamic range 16 bit/ 44.1 khz is capable of 96dB of it maxed to realise that in audio equipment would require roughly a power level 500 watts rms !!!,now who listens at 500 watts?,the highend guys make high power equipment,but they fail,because the listener doesnt listen at that level in an average home room,would go deaf, so,24 bit goes to 144dB even worse!!!. Most recordings on cd's have the same dynamic range of the analog masters minus analog noise, the noise has been taken out through digital signal processing,what this does is they sound better without the noise but the dynamic range is around 60dB not near 96dB.To sum up High-DR and High power suck.
THE RECORDING,THE CROWN OF EXCELLENCE.
The recording is the most important when it comes to good sound,even with the best equipment if the recording is rubbish the equipment will sound rubbish,Mp3 recordings made at home and posted on the internet are notorious of this,this is not to say mp3's are not good just they need people with skills to be made good recordings.
THE Digital Files PLAYER SOFTWARE
Not all players play the same,for example when i play mp3's on youtube player direct from online,it lacks impact,when i convert youtube music and play it on exe programs there again differences on impact,although i haven't tested many player programs,i'm very satisfy with windows media player, suprise suprise indeed.
