    mp3 320cbr is much worse than wav or flac but anything lower is too shitty.I remember one trip where I played 320 VBR 9mb 5min +-... kbps was going from 128 to 320,the difference in high freqency sharpness and clearnes was crazy,bass was empty,mids muddy and there was missing half of the high freqencies.Loseless is true music,compresed formats are just shadows of un perfect but much sharper,fatter,faster,wider wav.
