Hi there.

This is my 2nd topic here at HA. My first post was about a Rammstein sample where i ABX'ed 20/20 at 128 AAC VBR. That's the only sample so far that I can ABX 20/20. I recently tried 96 AAC VBR, and it sounds surprisingly good. I can't ABX it :/ Apart from that particular Rammstein sample.

My question is this, I've finally re-ripped all my cd's to ALAC. If I convert them to 96 AAC VBR, would you say it would be transparent? I'm using Creative Aurvana Live headphones, not high end. I'm trying to fit as many songs as possible on my iphone 5 32GB.

After a bunch of ABX'ing I've concluded, at least for me, that anything I can ABX with difficulty I'm not likely to notice in any normal listening situation and is certainly good enough for a space constrained player.

If you're worried about becoming more able to hear differences with experience, then you can re-encode without much difficulty when that time comes, or just redo the particular problem tracks.
