    NP: Up - Michael Giacchino

    One of this year's best scores (from those I've heard). Yet another different style for Giacchino, but not a bit lacking in the high quality of his other scores. smile

    Yeah. But DRM-free MPEGs from Amazon are better than iTunes, at least...

    That's what I currently have. I'm expecting hopefully some foreign release might be in CD form (in Japan for example). Otherwise it's Oscar promo time in January... even one with the same contents as the current release will be sufficient for me, as long as it's lossless.

    Aren't the iTunes downloads iTunes plus? That's 256k AAC which is pretty much CD quality anyway. Unless you have super human hearing you CAN'T distinguish the difference between a 256K AAC file from an uncompressed FLAC or WAV file unless you throw it into a wav editor and LOOK at the two files.

    Here here.

    Even with the most expensive equipment you will have a VERY hard time hearing any difference. Does make me smile when someone says they can. biggrin

    Properly ripped 320 kbps MP3/M4A sound almost similar to lossless, no doubt. That's why I don't carry around FLAC's on my MP3 player! wink

    I want the lossless for archival of my music and burning CDs for listening to on the music system. I do care for my archive of favourite music to be the best quality possible! My crazy obssession with quality, I admit.. tongue wink

    I usually want lossless for the scores I REALLY like though.

    No I can understand that, I wasn't really aiming that comment directly at you. I too like the feeling of having the best possible quality!

    One member that instantly springs to mind who believes he can actually hear differences between high quality MP3s to CD audio is Justin (shocking isn't it?). Many times we've tried to convince him it's a placebo effect, but as I've said before, unless you've got the hearing of Superman and the sound system of God, YOU WON'T HEAR A DAMN BIT OF DIFFERENCE!

    Actually on my MP3 player I keep only 192 kbps MP3s! I can't hear any significant difference on the earphones, so it helps conserve space.

    Sensible thing to do. You'll need a very expensive pair of headphones* to warrant using anything of a higher bit rate on your portable player.

    I'm glad he his dedicating so much time to Avatar. I wish more composers would follow suit.
