    Anybody know how I can convert MP3's to MP3pro without converting them to wav first? I don't wanna waste that much time. lol

    There's a new file compression out called MP3Pro. It has the quality of MP3's but at a lower bitrate and half the file size. So you can have a 64kb/s MP3Pro file and it'll sound just as good as a 128 kb/s mp3.

    ha yeah i read about this tech. <br>
    <br>
    128kb/s bitrate quality sucks either way you squeeze it. Just instead of downloadin' a crappy soundin' MP3 at 128 in under a minute you get 2 download 2.<br>
    <br>
    Is there not an MP3pro 128kb/s version as well? What's it's MP3 quality counter-part? 160? 192?<br>

    I hear the mp3 pro format is much better, with the downside of haveing to have a specific mp3pro player to take advenatge of it. so no more winamp, at least for the time being.

    You do realize that that's the standard for cd quality right? I'd say 128's acceptable.

    mp3pro's supported by anything that plays mp3's. Winamp will work. Basically, it's an mp3, just with higher compression.

    I don't know what kinda cd's you're listenin' to. CD quality is 160 or 192 it is NOT 128. 128 is a shitty quality. you'd be able to see this if you didn't listen to your music through headphones. I can tell a difference between a MP3@128 bitrate and an actual cd that i bought.<br><br><i>This message was edited by WeaZel on 03 Oct 2001 12:25 PM</i>
