Just came by this test done at MaximumPC.com entitled "Do Higher MP3 Bit Rates Pay Off?". I have to say I am quite ... intruiged ?

Their choices of bit-rates were 160, 320Kb/s Mp3's (encoded in iTunes, VBR) and WAV. blink.gif

Anyone read it and feel its quite a strange choice ? Also the issues with it, such as not doing true ABX'ing?

I guess what I found to be the most strange is that the people doing the tests were all able to identify some of the 320Kb/s track, which I would assume
should be transparent for most people. [ducks]
Sounds like they didnt normalize the volume between the tracks or otherwise screwed up the test somehow.

edit: typos.
