    Are you sick of horrible sounding mp3?

    Are you fed up with the fact that you cannot get CD quality mp3 at 128kbps (contrary to what alot of magazines, websites and Microsoft says...)

    Do you want a better way?

    Well, here's a great guide to get you started:

    http://www.ping.be/satcp/cd2mp3-en.htm

    The only thing I'd change about the quide is that I suggest that you download LAME version 3.90.2 from http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/extra/LAME/lame3.90.2-ICL.zip instead, it is far more tested than any other version.

    www.hydrogenaudio.org is also a great place to learn about high quality music encoding and archiving. {did you know that there is an encoder [MPC] that gives much higher quality than mp3 at roughly the same bitrate?}

    Because I quest to have the best quality music, I will help anyone out as much as is humanly possible. Post here, IM me, email me, buy me a drink at the bar, you get the idea. Please just stop using Xing or Blade to make your mp3's!

    I wish I could take credit for the guide, but, alas, I can't.

    I've been thinking of writing my own though.
