MP3 (.mp3)
Musepack (.mpc)
Ogg Vorbis (.ogg)

It was a while since his last post. Well, there isn't much to see anyway.  Development of  most of audio encoders is finished.

Thanks anyway.

Listen to the music, not the media.

I chose mp3 (LAME 192 VBR for pop, 320 VBR for classical), because that's what my current rips are.  Yesterday I came across a post that got me thinking about re-ripping my CDs to Vorbis (q6), but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.  I ripped a few albums and compared the mp3 to Vorbis, and I thought the mp3 sounded a bit harsher.  The Vorbis sounded a bit more refined, which I liked.

Thanks to foobar2000 on Android I use lossy WavePack (no correction files) more and more, but that's for my own CD and vinyl rips, the majority of my Bandcamp and similar downloads are still AAC.

Opus - as it works very well with Chiptunes and any other kind of old computer music :)
