i got some M4A audio files that i would convert in MP3's. Now my question is:

Is a M4A file with 256kbps the equivalent to a MP3 File with 320kbps. if it is so, can i convert the M4A File to a MP3 with a constant bitrate of 320 kbps? or should i convert it to the same bitrate of 256kbps??

thanks for answers rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

Hydrogenaudio has and will continue to have nothing to do with files “in the wild”, so what is your point?

OP: There is no direct equivalence between any two formats and/or settings. The way to decide which bitrate to use is the same as always recommended here: an ABX test of the two files, ideally with the source being uncompressed.

In case you just want someone else to decide for you, they cannot because they do not have your ears. And you could benefit from searching for the many past threads on questions like this, rather than expecting people to answer them all over again.
