Title: Rhapsody v. Urge Streaming Listening Test
Post by: Otterhound on 2006-12-30 21:22:21
I think a discussion of user preferences between Rhapsody and Urge streaming audio would be interesting. However, I notice that the forum rules prohibit making subjective comparisons without backing them up with a double blind test.

What procedure could one use to do this and comply with the forum rules?

It'll be kind of hard to do unless you can somehow capture the same section of music encoded both ways.  But if you can, capture a number of music snippets to wav both ways and then use abchr-java to compare.

Urge shows as
Quote
Windows Media Audio 9 128 kbps, 44 kHz, stereo 2-pass CBR
and I'd be surprised if they do any special processing at that rate.  I'm not sure why they would use 2-pass with CBR.

I don't know what Real uses for Rhapsody.
