  1. ditto, thanks again anyway. This one was a vinyl rip, so will surely turn up lossless somewhere, sometime, anywhere, somebody, anybody?…..pleeeeez

  2. Anybody caught ripping precious vinyl to mp3 should be forced to have their ears cleaned by high pressure hose, and then be hung upside down in front of a pair of decent speakers until sufficient wax has fallen out for them to be able to appreciate the difference!

    When I am King Of The World (or President) this will be item #1 on the agenda, and in the current political environment all things are possible, so watch out unbelievers!

    1. In this case it appears that JTT ripped the vinyl into a lossless format and them someone came along and converted that to low bit rate MP3.

      I certainly get ripping stuff to MP3. Obviously I do it, and that’s what I listen to most of the time. I share the MP3s because I know a lot of folks don’t know what to do with FLAC files and I’d rather folks who want it be able to listen to the music rather than be snobbish and only do FLAC. But I surely do not get converting to such a low bit rate. Whats funny to me is a lot of these files still maintain all the original folders. I’ll download them see a FLAC folder and be satisfied only to curse when I open it to find a bunch of MP3s converted at 192kps.

      Oh well, plenty of great music to enjoy no matter the bit rate.

  3. Absolutely Mat. In my initial ‘draft’ (far too grand a term) I noted that Mr JTT would be livid to see his rip circulating at 192. However I deleted that part as i didn’t want to convey any sense of ingratitude or criticism at all. I totally understand that mp3 still has some relevance for some people in some situations. For myself i used to keep parallel directories of mp3 for use in portable players/car stereos etc. However I have to say that with changing tech specs (why does it take so long with modern product ‘lead times’?) and and alt open source firmware replacement (Check out ‘Rockbox’ folks – it rocks!) this need is thankfully diminishing with every passing year.

    Personally speaking vinyl>mp3 is just something which should never happen in any reality. Vinyl has an ‘openness’ to the topend of the frequency range which is just completely eliminated by mp3. CD> MP3 has always worked much better due to the fact that so much of the music has already been squashed (compressed) into the mid-range frequecy bands to sound loud on sub-optimal kit like car stereos , bluetooth speakers, headphones etc. mp3 simply exaggerates this effect to the nth degree.
