A classic question with varied answers, I'm sure. Be as elaborate about your choice, settings and setup as possible.

Do you find that the universal mp3 format is good enough for you?

Perhaps you like the free ride of ogg vorbis?

Is AAC your future format of choice?

Is MPC meeting your demands precisely?

Or perhaps you've decided to stick with a previous tool and use the DRM plagued formats, RM or WMA.

Explanations:

Yes.

Will OGG -q4.99? Any other format?


I'm not sure. I haven't done any testing with the later builds of rc4 or 1.0. There should be a q val that will give you similar quality, but I'm not sure sure what it'd be right now.
