As I've heard numerous times, lossy-to-lossy is BAD, I know this, please don't point this out anymore, it's an established point.

However, I'm looking to find out, what happens in this given situation:
FLAC->MP3 320 CBR->MP3 192 CBR
that is different from
FLAC->MP3 192 CBR

Oh, but you lose quality between 320->192... YES, but you lose even more quality between FLAC->192. Of course, I do NOT know how encoders work, but I'm tired of people not knowing about transcoders try to tell me that "it's just different and i will not tell you how". My very simplistic view is that it is a layer cake, FLAC being 5 layers, 320 being 4 layer and 192 being 2 layers, and that with 320->192 you're just removing another layer. I know this is wrong, and I'm trying to find out what is really going on in transcoding, that makes the two things different.
Thanks to anyone willing to help me with this smile.gif
