I'm in the process of building a new house.
We are planning on putting in moderately high end Speakercraft speakers into most of the rooms and will be wiring the house for sound.
The music will be used mainly for background music/parties, etc..
My plan is to use an Audiotron or other MP3 based system to store and play 1000+ CD's that we own.
Assuming I'm not in a home theatre situation and use the sound as describe above, what compression rate should I use when creating the MP3 files to get a good sound but not go overboard in terms of file size?
Thanks for any help?
