        Why not go with AAC at the least?

            It's MP3 but more efficient, just because Apple by chance actually made something good doesn't mean it should be thrown away simply because it's made by Apple

    Hearing the difference now isn't the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is 'lossy'.

    What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA - it's about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don't want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.

    I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange...well don't get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren't stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you'll be glad you did.

      This. I let my Phil Collins song rot on a Seagate HDD and 15 years later it was a Drake song.

        I've collected 1000s of FLACs off of soulseek and I've probably ran into a a dozen or so that do not pass integrity check. Bit rot happens. At least with a format like FLAC you know when your music is damaged.

      Flac > aac > ogg > mp3
      mp3 is the shittiest and so obsolete, but it works everywhere so people keep using it.

      wouldn't bit rotting just make the data invalid? how does it make it sounds worse?

      also couldn't you just store it on raid 2 and reconstruct any lost bits?

      Do you think there's a chance you will ever realize how moronic you are?

    The one thing that gets me about collecting locally stored music is how old everything is, how, all the tagging and playback software is last saw significant updates like 15 years ago, they're all maintained by boomers at this point, zoomers don't even know about last.fm or discogs to catalog shit because they use spotify or youtube and just give up if a copyright holder takes down their favorite albums, they don't know about slsk (also 15 years old) and never will.

      I always kind of wonder how WMA, WMA Pro and ATRAC rank between AAC & MP3

    I'm well aware that the mp3 codec has some severe limitations and that AAC is pretty much what mp3 is but better in every way, but I'll still gladly use 320cbr/v0 mp3 if available.

    320kbps m4a for downloads, 192 opus for mobiles, flacs for cds/bandcamp dls and stuff worth actually archiving.

    ogg > mp3 > flac > aac > wma

    mp3s have good compression and just werk but they're still technically just worse oggs. flac is bloat and aac is bound by apple moronation. wma is literally who tier even on windows nowadays.
