I got an APE file and downloaded ‘easy CD-DA extractor’ for a 30 day trial period in order to cenvert it to MP3 (did not get Monkey’s Audio because I didn’t want to install multiple players on my PC)
The Question: The original APE file is 198 MB, after converting to MP3 i got a file size of 64 MB (converted’ set to ‘cd quality’, i did not set the bit rate)
This probably means I lost a lot of quality on the way right? I doubt MP3 files can compress 3 times better than APE and maintain the quality… I heard that APE files have a very good compresion (this is a full CD)
thanks for the help.
