Converting Audio Tracks Into Mp3 Format

Question

Hi,

 

I see that there are many possibilities to make quality mp3 files out of a audio trac. In the dialog box it states 192 kps is better quality however 320 kps is listed as best quality.

 

Will any song ripped at 320 kps be the best quality one can get in the mp3 format ?

 

Will a ripped song ripped at 320 kps use up more room on a cd than 192 kps ?

 

How could I determine what kps a mp3 file was made ?

 

If it was around 192 kps, could I convert the same song to a wav file and then rip to a 320 kps MP3 file ?

 

Thanks

Audio converted at 320 kbps will have less data 'stripped out' than those converted at 192 kbps and so be larger files.

 

To check the bitrate of an audio file, right click on the file, select 'properties' and on the details tab it will show the bitrate.

 

Once a file has been converted to MP3 format, the data has been lost forever. To covert an MP3 format file to WAV will not put back the lost data. You would need the original audio file to rip to whatever format you wanted.

Thanks. I now understand the mp3 format. I do have a number of audio cd's that I will rip to 320 kps so the soound in the mp3 format will sound better.

Unless you have super ears, and you have top notch equipment, I doubt that you will hear much difference.
