Just remember that the larger the bitrate....the larger your mp3 will be in filesize. Hence the fewer you can fit on 1 disc
Personally, I can't really hear the difference between one encoded at 192 vs 320....but I'm not exactly an audiophile either..Heck, I only just started dabbling with EAC this month as opposed to my good ole standby Audio Catalyst. Alot of this may have to do with the kinds of music I tend to rip also...Live backroom blues bar cd's have a different need than club mixes
I can clearly hear a difference between 128 and 192, but on my hardware...past 192 I don't really gain any significant quality..
If you are archiving for professional use....you may wish to consider a lossless format as opposed to mp3:eek:
