I try to struggle to understand what this does. I am relatively new on this area


What does it do really? Does FLAC have Bit reservoir too?

Thanks in advance!

I've seen lots of post about using bit reservoir, and some say to use it, but does it actually degrade from the orginal source. I understand that MP3 is already lossy, and I am trying to get best quality that I can. I have posted a topic on this earlier and have got lots of help. I am messing around with Foobar but there isnt a bit reservoir option with V0 VBR. Question is use BR when using a VBR? Is there a difference if this is left off? I noticed it makes the VBR's lower on average depending on music. Metal seems to cut abr by about 15 where in jazz and rock seem to cut it by 20-even 30. Smaller doesnt always worse, espically since VBR's are supposed to be better then CBR's at a lower bitrate. So use it or not????
