I have always used lossless compression, but I’m a bit tempted by the size of lossy compression. I like to rip multiple CDs and burn the tracks onto DVDs so they are easier to play. But using lossy compression can put a lot more CDs onto the DVD than with lossless compression.
So my question is, at what levels of lossy compression can the difference be inaudible? Like the bitrate and the codec, which codec is the best for producing inaudible differences at the lowest bitrate etc… Is there such a thing where lossy compression can be truly indistinguishable from lossless?
I use the Microsoft Windows and only play music on my computer, so compatibility of WMA isn’t a problem.
