I know this is subjective as hell, but does anyone (and I’m referring this to you WM9 users out there) have a preference at which bit rate to use while ripping CD’s in WM9 format?
I’ve got about 30 done so far at 192-bit rate, but then it takes up tons of space. Then I started doing some research, and I hear that the 64 Variable Bit Rate is really, really good, and cuts down file size around 75-percent.
I’ve tried recording the same song in different bit rates: 64, 64 VBR, and 192. The regular 64-bit rate does sound a bit tinny at times. 64 VBR and 192 sound really close. But I’m wondering if any of you have any experience/knowledge on this.
The ultimate goal is to find the most ideal bit rate for both audio quality and file size. Plus, eventually I’ll get a PocketPC, and I want to be able to just jam as many WMA’s on it as I can.
