I just noticed in the polls that more people use mpc than mp3!

Bearing in mind that I know nothing about mpc, could anyone explain the benefits over mp3?

I use alt-preset extreme... does anyone recommend I upgrade to mpc?

haha, I've noticed this same phenomenon. It seems some metal heads are closet audiophiles. wink.gif

Probably the folks from MPC-Donkey. A lot of people there are metal heads.
