    128 is definetly NOT CD quality

    Best bitrate (my opinion) is 192, since its not extremely large and sounds good too, but if you want CD quality get waves.

    Ive heard on websites that 192 is ALMOST CD quality which i dont really understand because i always find 128 the best and the kbps higher than 128.. i dont really notice any difference in the quality in the first place.. do you? :D

    128 is CD Quality, 192 sounds a little more crisper, I don't know I guess I got ears like a dog cause I could certainly tell the difference between both frequencies! :D

    128 V 192

    both sound similar in quality for the hi end but listen to the difference in the bass, especially sub bass

    CD quality is 320, this is official.
    128 and other's above might sound good in our system, +-, but put them in a system with a SBLive 5.1 Platinum and a very good sound speakers and you see the diference, I garantee, and you will notice the diference along the way you are pumpin the volume up.

    bye, :p

    Use EAC and the lame codec to produce a variable bitrate, thats the best you can get.
