MP3 to AAC
Authored by: sunilpunjabi on Jul 26, '02 07:02:15PM

I have 20gb of MP3 on my system Most of them are ripped @ 192.
Can I convert them to AAC? I'm not looking to improve the sound, as they are already MP3s. I would like to convert them to save the space and keep the same quality.

Could I do this?
If so, would I lose sound quality?

Yes, you would lose sound quality. Re-ripping is always a bad idea (be it sound, video or anything else). If at all possible, grab the original and redo it...

Re-encoding an already encoded audio file would (probably) amplify those compression artefacts you hear. For best results, encode the original CD audio... it's what I do. Actually, for best results, wait until Apple releases a high-complexity AAC coder (the one in QT6 is low-complexity, if I recall right).
