AC3 and ITMS AAC
Authored by: chris_on_hints on May 29, '06 10:40:20AM

a couple of points:

- i can hear the audio artefacts at 128kp AAC, even though it is better and an equivalent MP3.

- i rip cd's at either 192 or use the variable bit rate set to 200-or so. The files end up 40% bigger than an ITMS 128kp file, but the sound is far better. i find the bass is much better defined and the treble seems tighter.

- oh, and doesnt the surround sound system use tricks so it doesnt have to have 6 tracks of 64kb, by recording the 'differences' between tracks??

Bought No Music, But Got 1 Ep. of a TV Show
Authored by: themacnut on May 10, '06 06:12:24PM

I've bought no music off the iTMS, and most likely never will. I listen to the streaming stations on iTunes for my music and am satisfied with that. But I've bought 1 episode of a TV series-the season finale of Battlestar Galactica, Lay Down Your Troubles. That worked out well enough I may buy more episodes of my fav. TV shows.
