I rip most of my tapes at 192, never really noticed much diff between them except file size.
Purists use 320's for single mp3's, for sets use 192, no point really of huge 320 sets.


Just read why you want to know. FUCK KNOWS M8, sorry. lol

Some people will notice, there isnt much differnce though. If you can get your hands on lame or wavepad and re-encode your mp3's to say vbr 192 so there all the same.

to answer your original question, no it wont make much of a difference. yes the quality police will be on you, but as long as you make your levels peak the same. the sound is the same

You'll probably be able to hear the difference between 192 CBR (constant bit rate) and 320 CBR. A good VBR (variable bit rate) rip encoded with a quality encoder such as LAME is a good trade-off between quality and filesize if you're trying to fit as much as possible onto a CD.

192 CBR isn't good enough for mixing, I'd try for at least -good- VBR rips, or a 320 CBR.

Still, if the track isn't ripped properly then it won't matter how you encode it, it's gonna sound pants.

I'd say always encode at 320, whether its a set for dnbforum.com or a track for playing out. That's because I can hear the difference on my equipment. That is - I think I can. The size difference doesn't really matter in these days of broadband.

Always use LAME - don't use another encoder.
Always upload to dnbshare.com.

Personaly I always use 320 mate. Even this is a little second rate to say wav but it's ok. Some people don't mind using 192 and say it's good enough for a club but I would still use a minimum of 320.
Hope that helps.
