wma: vbr 98
aac: q1.00
vorbis: ogg q10.0
musepack: q10
mp3: cbr 320k

Which is the best, or what are the differences if it is hard to say which is the best?
If I want to hear the differences, how much is the audio system that I need?(if necessary, with which genre music?)

Thanks.

PS: If it feels that the words is hard to read, I'm sorry for my poor English tongue.gif

Either way, the increase definitely is not linear, and spending $10000 is likely to be hilariously excessive (but joyous to ‘audiophile’ marketers). And if perceived quality did scale linearly with cost, what would be the point of spending $10000 on a system and then using a lossy format?

That aside, no one here has your ears, so you will have to conduct your own tests on a representative sample of tracks from your library in order to determine what your personal threshold of transparency is for any given format. Or if you don’t feel like doing that and want to take the gamble that the accumulated results of other users are predictive in your case, there are plenty of previous threads comparing different lossy formats, as has been said. I imagine many users would probably conclude that such high quality settings are excessive, anyway.
