I probably won't be able to abx anyway, but from a technical point of view: which of the three codecs (and corresponding settings) would likely produce the least noticeable artefacts?

So far I have used MPC standard, since it gave me the smallest file size.

What's your opinion?



Sorry, just noticed that the Topic was truncated. It should have said lame V2, mpc standard, Lossywav extraportable

extraportable lowest quality output, not fully transparent.

Lame V2 and MPC standard are generally considered transparent. The most recent (2005) listening test I found, comparing both, is this: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=36465 performed by a single listener with good ears: guruboolez on a single genre: classical. In this particular test both produce similar (if not statistically identical) but non-transparent quality.

AFAIK there is no recent test which provides a general answer to your question (many listeners, diverse sample set), in part because conclusive results are not expected.
