I wish there's a general section under lossy audio compression.
Anyway, would like to encode Andrea Bocelli - Opera (2012) in the smallest file size possible that can be handled by blind ABX! I'm open to any lossy encoder that's best for the job. I also wonder what info I have to provide about this CD to get the best conclusion here.
I know but it just seems to be a tendancy around here to hammer new users with "test for yourself".

@Mach-X, thanks for understanding : )@db1989, thanks for your opinion, I guess I understand the purpose of ABX. But I was actually requested by a friend for the lossy encoding. I just think there's some member here who has the knowledge and 'adequate' hardware and experience could give me a starting point.Bottom line, too much ABX test will drive me crazy!
Dynamic, everything you said is in my post. Did you even bother reading previous posts?
Often times I'm curious myself what codec/settings experienced folks like you or greynol or Arny use even though I've done way too much tinkering and abx testing myself.
