CD vs MP3 Quality.

In an OTA thread yesterday, several people brought up this issue. Those posts were deleted since they hijacked an OTA thread.

I'd like to start that "debate" again here. (the people who were discussing digital vs analogue cameras in that thread may do the same in a new thread) ;)

If I recall the gist of what people were saying, they were stating that MP3s were better than CDs because 128 is higher than 44.

I believe people have got bitrate and sampling frequency mixed up...

I use Apple iTunes and it has a lossless encoder. Saves about 50%.

You are correct that some files do compress more than others on computers, programmes hardly compress, while you can get a 10:1 compression on some files.
