How to get a higher mp3 bitrate

Is there any way which I can change the bitrate of mp3 file I have (like 128 to 190) without ripping it from the CD again?


We covered the key points of this in this thread. Once quality is lost in a lossy compression, the only way is to rip again.

You can reduce the bit rate of an existing MP3 if you must, but it’s still better to go from the original source material than going through an uncompress and compress cycle on already compressed material.
