? about rec'd LAME setting descriptions 2005-09-21 19:59:53 A friend of mine (who cannot post here because he only has yahoo and gmail emails) want me to post this:QuoteSince I gave you trouble last week about notdeciding on an audio format I've been thinking moreabout what I said about LAME. The recommendations onHA refer to LAME --preset standard as quote "--presetstandard (or -V2): generally transparent preset,almost indistinguishable". They talk about extensivetesting and tuning of the "--preset standard". NowI'm wondering exactly what that means. What does"generally transparent" mean? I know in my case I can't tell the difference evenwith "--preset medium" but you raised a good point. Just how good does your equipment/hearing need to beto distinguish "--preset standard"? Are we talkingabout 95% of the population? 99.99%? Again, thequestion is completely academic for me because I can'thear the difference anyway.
