LAME - yeuch!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on October 06, 2006 07:20 AM
Through much experimentation, I could not find any LAME settings (even 320kbps cbr) which did not completely ruin the sound of the music I was encoding, even when played back on relatively low quality playback equipment (eg, my crusty old laptop's sound output and a ~US$20 pair of closed headphones).

I seriously recommend integrating with <a href="http://bladeenc.mp3.no/" title="mp3.no">BladeEnc</a mp3.no>, it's faster and produces much better quality sound files. OGG is probably a little bit better, but if you need MP3, you need MP3.
