Vacuum tubes are the greatest thing for audio. They provide a much richer and warmer sound compared to transistors.mistermike said:I'm a grumpy, old-school, vacuum tube audiophile who doesn't even like CDs. I only use mp3 for music I can't get by any other means.
mp3's encoded at 256k a second are not bad at all. Particularly compared to anything other than a CD. Even compared to a CD they are nearly indistinguishable, particularly in an automotive setting.mistermike said:Ouch
AAC is vastly superior to mp3. In fact theres quite a few formats superior to mp3- ie. smaller file/better quality. mp3 is very old news, but looks like its gonna be here for quite a while kinda like VHS was. It's a shame though.The AAC encoding is very nice
