wish to test for audible differences between v0 quality LAME encoded MP3 and a lossless audio format.
 is a related study which compared CD audio to LAME encoded mp3 audio of different bit rates. This study suggests that there is no audible difference between CD audio and LAME encoded mp3 audio with CBR 320 and 256 kb/s.
I would add this to my initial post, but I can't seem to find an "Edit" button.
Now you can only (and rightly so, I must say) edit a post up to two hours following its creation.
You can download some killer samples from here.eig_essence, lead-voice, harp40_1, herding_calls, trumpet_myPrince are samples where you might hear a deviation from the original.
