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.

Everyone is climbing on the bandwagon of saying only the OP can judge his own level of transparency, but if other people are going to listen to his music on his player, then it is a fair concern whether it will sound ok to most people.

You may not have noticed that there is a category on the forum for listening tests. Take a look there, and some of the larger participation ones are archived at:

Right, what can be more usefull than 7-8 years old outdated tests with LC-AAC?
If the test should be outdated to call atention ... So let it be.
