Should I convert my ALAC collection to AAC or Ogg? 2010-06-25 17:13:55 I recently converted my Apple Lossless albums to MP3 -V0 with dBpoweramp Pro, which slashed my original obese 33GB to an anorexic 9.9GB. Perfect! since saving HD space on my low rent laptop was my prime intention.Then I listened to them on my iPhone. Whole different story, I thought it was awful. The quality was no where to be found. My albums started to sound like someone was pounding them through a gritty filter. Just awful.So I remember a friend telling me all about this new advance codec: AAC. The supposed successor to MP3. Then I remember my other friend bragging about Ogg Vorbis. He said it was the highest quality codec ever in lossy.Now I'm not an idiot, I don't plan on enjoying artifacts in my albums because I convert lossy (MP3 -V0) to lossy (AAC).I planned ahead and had my original Apple Lossless collection stored in storage.I love having my albums in my iTunes. Call me crazy but iTunes seems alot more uniformed and organized than any other software (reason why I ripped my CD's to ALAC instead of FLAC).To my point, should I convert my ALAC albums to AAC or Ogg (In terms of quality to space consumed ratio)? Is there a better codec?Thanks.
