Hey /mu/, what's the best format for music from a space:quality perspective?

is 192kbps bad?
is 320kbps the ideal?
is FLAC a noticeable enough change for it to be worth it?

I'm downloading 320kbps mostly, but I'm not sure wether I should downgrade to 192kbps to save space or not. Is the loss in quality not worth the extra space?

hahahahaha is that pic freal?? hahahahaha

is this bait?
Given how cheap 1TB HDDs are nowadays there's no excuse to use other format than FLAC.
>>
Ideally, V0 MP3. It varies bitrate based on how much is going on in a song. It makes optimal use of space without sacrificing quality.
>>
v0 has the same level of transparency as 320 but with smaller files. Go for that
>>
>>59680424
If you want to save space go from V0 to VBR, don't reduce the bit rate. 192kbps sounds like ass.

These anons are correct. V0 is the ideal mp3 configuration. Please don't transcode your 320 mp3s to other bitrates though! It'll make them sound like shit! Redownload/rerip in the different bitrate!

yeah but you can save more albums on a 1tb with 320 than flac, but then again if you have a 1tb dedicated to music its likely you're also archiving it so flac would make sense
>>
>>59680591
Everything should be sourced from FLAC
>>
>>59680496
huh? This is an issue for portable music players, that's the reason I'm asking
>>
>>59680497
thanks, looking that up; sounds like the ideal format.
