    AACplus

    I am trying to keep my collection mp3PRO, cause of many programs can read them. But I'm hoping that suport for AACplus will come soon. For me space is a constante problem and I dont have a lot of it.

    If anyone knows any news on this codec, I would like to know thax.

    Re: AACplus

    AACPlus is Mp4 HE (or AAC HE), nero create it - dbpoweramp will decode it no problems.

    Re: AACplus

    I supports it in that it can read such files, and with the Nero encoding plugin (in beta) it can create AAC+ files.

    Re: Audio Format Poll

    My collection is mp3 at the moment, but since those are recovered from a hard disk crash :vmad: most are messed up. So i'm looking around for a new file format. I think it will be aac+, but i still have to test sound quality at various bitrates before deciding.

    Re: Audio Format Poll

    I use the mp3 format, mainly becuase it is currently universal and I can put the files on a disk and play it on my stereo and on any computer I come in contact with. I am curious about doing more with ogg or monkies though. I rip at 192 kbps and I think I get great results ofr my type of music (classic country) but there are a few of my collections I'd like to have lossless.

    Hi, all I could find out about .vvs is a site called file hungry.com, it has a converter available, but is shareware. You might want to give it a look. At least its a place to start. good luck.

    I use 64/44/stereo mp3pro for storage,because that's what I stream in thru Live365. Besides,I have only a 20gb HD ("only" 20gb...two years ago that was Sooooo big).

    Hi...
    I use OptimFROG Dualstream for most encoding, but with rare/old
    cd's I use OptimFROG lossless. I am also considering about only to
    use a lossless encoder for back-up for all my cd's instead.

    Re: Audio Format Poll

    going from monkey to ogg is still going from losless to lossy. i find it difficult to tell the difference between ogg-VB/192 and the original. but i guess it depends on your sound system and setup as well.

    I rip to ape for use on my home computer but convert to MP3 192 to use on my Nomad Zen, which I use in my car as my car stereo. Ape files are great!
