Which encoder to use today? 2017-10-06 21:03:25 I decided to start rip my whole CD collection to the AAC format and I want to get the best results possible while keeping the files "portable". I was going to use the Nero AAC Encoder with EAC but I searched the Web for 2 hours last evening to validate my choice but now I feel I'm more confused than I was before.During my search I read here on the forum that Nero AAC was outdated. Which encoder do you use today? CBR or VBR? I usually trust more CBR over VBR for MP3s as the results seems more consistent and the gained space with VBR is not really a big plus for me but I'm not sure my experience with MP3s apply with AAC...To give you an idea I always use 320 CBR for my MP3s and I'm mostly listening to rock/metal music.Any input welcome!
