Hi Everyone,

I originally posted in the Playstation area, but this seemed to be the more appropriate forum for my questions.

Can someone please advise me on what combination of AAC/MP3/ATRAC and the various bit rates (i.e. 96; 128; etc.) will produce the best end result when importing a CD? The current default on the PS3 is AAC at 128 kbps.

Is it a matter of what bit rate the original CD is recorded in?

Finally, what is the recommended bit rate for audio CD output? Currently, the PS3 default is 48kHz, but a mixed setting of 44.1/1??/??? is available.

Thanks for the help!
B

Here is just MY humble Opinion

For archiving CD.

FLAC or APE

For backing up CD for the purpose of mobility, LAME.

Hard Drive not being an issue, I would encode using Variable Bit Rate encoding @ 320. Usually the encodes will average about 220kbps VBR. Do not upsample from 44.1Khz to 48 khz. Gains you nothing.

Do NOT let the magic smoke out because it is impossible to put the magic smoke back in!!!!

I use EAC to be sure I'm getting accurate rips. With the PS3 there's no way to tell. I would use EAC for ripping and LAME for encoding to MP3 on the computer, then copy them over to the PS3.

BTW Figgie, while CDs can be played at 44.1Khz, the PS3 outputs MP3 and WAV files at 48Khz, so there will be upsampling whether he likes it or not. Hopefully they'll fix this in a future system update.

Hey man, the PS3 can actually output at 44.1/176 and something else. So we do have the option...its under music settings

That's only for audio CDs, not WAV or MP3.
