I've been researching a little bit on sound quality and wanted to open a discussion here. I ripped a lot of CDs at 128 Kbps (Kilobytes per seconds) although some people think 160 is the best. Can any of you tell the difference. What is the bitrate for "CD Quality" sound?

i rip at 320kbps.. i can tell a difference between 120 and 320 easily.. i dont rip at 320 if the cd is scratched tho.. it usually messes up the song.. but if its a new cd, i rip at 320 and i believe that is cd quality.. i am not sure if it is cd quality but it is as close as i know you can get to cd quality..

I rip at 160 which is fine for me, I cant really tell a difference. But the music I download I'll take what I can get ;)

I rip and convert all my music to 128 kbps in AAC format. It sounds great for me, it always depends on how it sounds to you.

I'm a 192kbps fan.

From all my experiences, 128 is a nice steady speed that will give you good quality. I do all my ripping/burnings at 128.

I rip at 192 in mp3 format.

I generally use 192 kbs mp3, though it should be noted that it is impossible to generate cd quality sound through mp3 format. There is a difference in quality by using the mp3 compression. Some people can hear it, others cannot.

me too!They don't occupy space like 320kbps does.Does anyone know where i can get a free mp3 encoder?

Always 32-320 VBR or AAC 128 (If I'm lazy and what not, or if I bought it). Maximum sound quality per frame with lower file sizes.

So...who can tell the difference between 128 and 192 and what is the difference?

the kbps indicates the rate at which data flows from your file to the player.CDs have a very high speeds(1000 and above).so higher the bitrate number , better the audio quality

(Forgive me if i am wrong)

My bands songs are ripped to Mp3 in the studio down to 128Kb/s, I find it sounds perfect.

Oh yeah...I remeber seeing over a thousand kbps listed for CDs.

When I rip from CDs I do everything in WAV format, so none of the sound is lost in the original rip from the CD. Then I open up my editor and convert it to 192 kbps mp3. I used to use 128 but it sounded a little fuzzy in comparison to 192.
