Hi, I've just spent alot of time researching about mp3 encoding and I'm still confused. I want to encode all my audio cd's into mp3 format but I want to make sure I get the best sound and the best compression before I go ahead and convert all of them (about 400 cd's)Currently, I have MusicMatch,iTunes, Exact Audio Copy & Audio Grabber (both with the mp3 pro fraunhofer codec installed)installed. I've got a 10 gig iPod so I want to maximize my music collection to fit as much as I can on the iPod. I am ok with 128kbits/s. Would I notice a big difference if I went with 160 or 192kbit/s instead? Also, I notice that Music Match seems to have a bigger database library when retrieving music database info. In addition it supports Album Art - unlike Audio Grabber and Exact Audio Copy. Is there a difference between encoding with Music Match, Audio Grabber and Exact Audio Copy? I'd like to use Music Match but if the other two are better I'll use them instead and just use MM to get the Album Art. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
