    ogg vorbis question

    I am looking to convert some hi-res flac to ogg vorbis quality 10 VBR for use on an iphone XR. Which encoder should I use, the classic one, the sse or the sse3? And do they all have the same sound quality? Thanks

    I have asked this question in the past. Just wondering if there are any updates regarding the iphone per se.

    Potentially you would be better going m4a AAC.

    Thanks. But I can play ogg vorbis using the Onkyo hf player app. Would just like to give it a try.

    On the highest quality setting all ogg files created by the 3 methods would sound the same.

    And if I use near around the 160 kbps mark then?

    The sse3 encoder would potentially be best for 160kbps.

    Re: ogg vorbis question

    So I am using SSE3 (160 kbps) and instead of using volume normalization, I wanted to use replay gain (apply) for the album gain (apply) option. Is this the right sequence?

    1. Bit depth 32 bit depth
    2. Resample 48 khz (the phones only output at 48 khz with the supplied DAC, no 44.1 option)
    3. Replay gain album gain
    4. Replay gain (apply) (album gain)

    Is this right? or should i put volume normalization too at 1(a)?

    32 bit is probably not needed, you can go 24 bit.

    3+4 can be replaced with Volume normalize (set to replaygain).

    Ok. Won't that become volume normalize replaygain (track gain) in that case?

    Yes you are correct, you would need to run as you are, however album gain is written at the end of conversion, you would have to put step 4 on its own after converting with steps 1,2,3.

    Many thanks. This is exactly the clarification I was looking for. Thanks. Just to clear it up, I will do replay gain apply (album gain) separately and not part of the chain?

    Re: ogg vorbis question

    Thanks I got it. What I am doing is deleting the previous steps 1,2,3 and applying replaygain album gain and over-writing the files in the same folder after first using steps 1,2,3.
