OGG at 64kbps will outperform anything else at 128kbps and will give you FM quality at about 40kbps (using a 32 kHz sample rate).

No, **I** am teaching YOU about DISTORTION. DISTORTION IS DISTORTION, and we should avoid it like the plague.
My favourite is in the second thread, about a PhD.
Well, **HE**'s got a point. After all, **HE** has a PhD in **SCIENCE**.

Brushing all of psychoacoustics aside as a pseudoscience is beyond..
I think the thing that bugs me the most about these sorts of discussions - well, audiophile discussions in general - is that the people who tend to make these sorts of claims have no desire or need to actually understand the science behind what is going on. You see exactly the same thing going on with audiophiles regarding analog/digital discussions.
