    difference between 64kbps 44khz and 128kbps 44khz

    Hi,

    Just wondering. Is 64kbps 44khz FM quality? Or is it 128kbps 44khz? Why is there a quality difference even if the 44khz remains the same?

    What is audio cassette quality? 64kbps 44khz or 128bkpz 44khz? FM quality? LP quality?

    Thanks, please reply.

    Technically, CD quality is 128kbps and FM quality is 96kbps. The reason there is a difference is the "kbps" affects how much data is stored about the signal per second. The more data that is stored, the better it sounds.

    And Cassette quality is analog wave, so no bitrate or sampling frequency! However, the actual bandwidth is a little limited due to the physical restraints of the tape itself.

    In my opinion, all of that is false to me. Come on now! If you convert CD audio to 128 kbps mp3, ogg, or wma, or mp4, or whatever lossy codec, face the truth: It does NOT sound CD quality. Actually, it sounds quite terrible.

    Actually IMHO AAC @ 128kbps and WMA @ 128kbps w/ 2Pass VBR sounds pretty darn good. So I wouldn't say that's the truth. Hearing is very very different between each person. Some of us pick up things others don't.

    Thanks. Yes, CD quality is much much better of course.

    To tell you the truth, I can't tell the difference between 128kbps and 64kbps. Maybe I have bad hearing.
