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...

When I rip CDs to put on my Creative Muvo TX to listen to on the bus, I rip them at 192/44. It's good enough for what I use it for.

I've played some on my stereo (using my DVD player) and they sound OK to me, but my ears are really messed up thanks to an Iron Maiden convert 20 years ago :(
