Do you primarily use MP3 or FLAC?

95% uses MP3
About 5% uses FLAC exclusively

Mostly FLAC.

>>61739660
Pleb.

MP3 but nothing below 320 Kbps. I thought the different Kbps having an effect on sound was a meme at first, but after listening to 320 and higher on good headphones for over a year I'll never go back

I'm the 5% master race

FLAC at home, MP3 on the go.

Not really, try encoding a song in OPUS and listen to it.

>>61740272

>>61739609
mp3, preferably v0 or 320
>>
>>61740355
nice smudges
>>
>>61739609
For albums I like, or where sound quality is essential I'll get it in FLAC. If I'm downloading something on a whim I'll get mp3 and Flac later id I like it.

really it depends on what rutrracker has anyway
>>
>>61740316
patrician. as. fuck.
>>
>>61739609
for a while I was cd only

then I realized that was fucking retarded and moved to flac only

then I abx'd myself and couldn't tell the difference between 320 kbps mp3s and flacs on tracks I knew intimately, so I just do mp3s now

who knows how far my standards could fall in the coming years
>>
>>61741006
abx between 320 MP3 and 128 Vorbis, save yourself a bunch of space

redpill me on alternative lossy audio formats anons

I have mix of 320 kbps mp3 and FLAC for the albums that I have for serious listening, I use what I can find. Most of my doujin music is whatever it is on dojin.co.
And I use ogg vorbis on my music player
>>
>>61741498
Opus is unbeaten at low bitrates but pointless at high
Vorbis is competitive with AAC and free as in freedom
AAC would be GOAT for high quality at not bad filesize but is nonfree
MP3 is #1 because it is #1 and bloated and evil and pointless like Windows
>>
>>61741582
so basically if you're a fossfag you go for vorbis and if you don't give a shit you go aac
>>
FLAC for storage, MP3 320 on phone/ipod/general listening
>>

FLAC followed by MP3 followed by APE, ALAC

flac when possible

bump this is really scary guys should i be worried?

>>61739660
Exclusively? I listen to a lot of 320 MP3s on the go.
>>
>>61743571
No. The average adult will have time accurately hearing over 14K. But if you're not a normie you'll hear things missing.
>>
>>61743609
I feel like this is happening rly early
is there anything i can do to stop it?
>>
>>61741939
do...you even listen to music?
>>
>>61739609
MP3

FLAC definitely. I literally just got finished converting my entire mp3 library to FLAC and the difference is remarkable.

I've got plenty of external drives for backup/'archiving'. How do I convert my music to which more space-efficient format?

Gotta go fast. Got the last one for free so I got rid of the 2tb internal.

>>61743989
You do realize that you only need to install your OS on a small SSD for speed right? Everything else can go on decent-sized HDDs.

both.

I download everything in FLAC when available to avoid transcodes, then convert it to v0 and delete the FLAC files.
>>
>>61744061
Yes. But I noticed a bit of lag for certain tasks, which annoyed me to no end. I assemble pc's for a living so got access to plenty of parts to swap out for diagnosis, turned out it was just the disk that couldn't keep up with the rest.
>>
I pretty much only download from /mu/ (aside from collage binges during WCD FL) and most of the time it's in what I would call decent quality (at least 192kbps, mostly v0/320). I always download in FLAC from Bandcamp because who knows if they were using lossy sources. I will snatch an album in FLAC if I like it enough, but MP3 is "good enough" most of the time, especially since I'm starting to come across albums that aren't available in FLAC.
