What's the truth about compressed audio?????? very confused!!!!
I'm an absolute beginner to HiFi, I've recently sold my B&O system and want to get a 'proper' system!
Apolgies if this has already been raised on this forum, but I'm getting mixed messages about mp3 etc.
I'm unsure whether to buy a CD player, or whether they are on their way out. I've been told that compressed music files are indistinguishable from CD quality if over 320kps. However the guy in my Hifi shop has told me that they need to be uncompressed to give CD quality. Other web sites state that in hearing test very few people can tell the difference between 128 and 320kps.
I'm more confused than ever now, can someone in the know enlighten me please!
Thanks in advance for your help
