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...

Does everyone forget what forum we're on, yet again? Many of the iPodders really don't care about sound integrity or quality. Buying expensive sound equipment in order to reproduce the sound, be it CD, SACD or DVD-A isn't what interestes these people. It's being able to get 5000 songs on a handheld machine so they can listen to what they want when they want.

I play MP3's on my 'bigass' stereo all the time, and don't really care. I can get 4000 songs on a DVD-R, and that's all I really care about.
