Hi everyone.

I've been following these forums for quite a while, but today I decided to register and post my experience.

After reading on forums I decided that AAC 128 VBR would give me transparent results, so I re-ripped everything.

But today I ABX'ed Rammstein - Sonne and got 20/20. I'm so mad, I need to re-rip everything again sad.gif

And I'm only using Sennheiser HD439, cheap headphones, plugged into my cheap Acer laptop. This is insane. The cymbals are what give it away every time, and there's this "swoosh" sound in general, especially in the chorus.
