I was reading that website and saw that they reccomend Winamp 2.7+ or mpg123 as the mp3 decoder. However i believe it was from here or the other board that MAD was a better decoder? What's the deal actually?

the test does use older version of MAD 12.2 instead of 14.2 ....

Just want opinions I guess ... I mean i dont have the hardware to really tell the difference, just a TBSC connected to a z560 set. With Sony MDR-V6 for heaphone use, not really high end stuff, but i am just curious

I use MAD over the default Nullsoft decoder in Winamp because of MAD's auto clipping attenuation feature, and I wouldn't even need this if I bothered to MP3gain my files.

huh? I dont understand that. Sorry I am quite a noob when it comes to this.

I kinda understand mp3gain ... and am thinkin about trying it but i do not knoe what and if i am gonna do.

What does MAD's auto clipping attenuation do? makes it so the sound doesnt clip when volume is high?
at least that what i get...

aiya so lost again
