i downloaded dbpoweramp to convert all my flac-files to mp3, so i can play them in my car and on my handy.
my question is: at what settings do i get the best quality at mp3 from flac? I guess 320kbps CBR and slow encoding. but the rest? i guess the difference between joint setreo and normal stereo isnt that big. but i have no clue what i should choose at frequency. as source? and what about crc error protection and force iso compatibility?
thx in anticipation

ok, i now know at least a bit what crc error protection and iso compatibility is. i guess i dont nedd it, right?
but i'm still clueless about the frequency settings...

320 yes, crc / iso are not needed.

and what about frequency? as source, or what?

hey i got one more question: from the quality point of view...when i have many songs put together in one big flac file...do you think it would be better to split them first with the cue-file or convert them to mp3 first??
