Re: Question about CD-Quality and MP3

Are you asking whether the degradation in MP3 from CD audio is
audible? At lower quality compression, yes. Other than that, it
depends on the user. It's similar to the vinyl vs. CD discussion.

Ogg is generally considered higher quality than MP3, but it is still
lower quality than CD. Whether or not this is audible is, again, for
the user to decide. Personally, I can't tell the difference between
MP3 and CD, but then I don't hear the "warmth" in vinyl, despite it
being a higher quality format on paper.
