At such high bitrates, the difference is largely technical. I am confident you will not be able to tell them apart from your flacs.When you set the quality slider to just below the max setting, you will produce files that are perfectly fine. If you're not confident that the max VBR of foobar and 320CBR sound the same, you can do an ABX test with two file converted from the original flac.Happy convertin'.
isn't VBR always the better option?
is it possible that if i convert an album in mp3 320kbps vbr, that i will get a smaller bitrate than 320kbps??
that s why i thoguht its better to have 320 kbps cbr because thats always 320kbps the same, i thought that if i convert it in vbr 320kbps ,that i could get than a smaller bitrate like 256kbps or ....
ABX testing, which you can do in Foobar2000, would prove me right.
You're arguing that no one can tell the difference between -V0 and 320 and are suggesting ABX tests can be used to prove it.Ignoring the fact that your claim is patently false (there are people who can routinely spot artifacts in 320kbit mp3 or otherwise in normal music samples, despite how incredible you want us to believe your hearing is), the logic that a failed ABX test (however you try to define what a "failed" ABX test is) can somehow prove it, is fundamentally flawed.
What he means is that ABX testing is legitimate scientific testing and as such can only disprove phenomena, not prove them. An overwhelming number of Ayes will still be trumped by a single Nay.
