What a difference AAC makes...24 little megabytes.

I know this is old news and has already been discussed in detail here, but I'm impressed by the quality of AAC, and how much SPACE it saves.



I just re-ripped my John Mayer "Room For Squares" CD (no comments from the peanut gallery), and saved 24.4 megabytes on my hard drive by ripping it into AAC at 128k! The difference in sound quality is miniscule to nothing, too, over mp3.



I was getting close to maxing out my iPod with all my mp3s, but once I re-rip all my CDs in AAC I'll have a lot more space to play with.



Cool. 8)

    That's a lot of work but it should pay off in a lot of space savings.



    I'm curious to do some home testing of AAC versus other codecs but I need a decent pair of headphones first.

    AAC rules, and so does Mayer...but he was better before every single 12 year old girl in the world started to like him...grrr. I remember the days when I could go to a John Mayer show and not be surrounded by screaming 12 year olds, just people who really appreciate good song writing, singing, and music. Ahh, those were the days.

    haha...me too. The first time I saw them was in 98...when I was in 7th grade or something like that, before they were as huge as they have been in the past few years. A lot has changed since than, they are a different band now. But I still love them, I'm goin to see them for the 19th time this summer



    Back OT...AAC rules...blah blah blah.



    AAC really does have better quality though, I love it. And 24 less MB per album does add up!

    Apple's AAC encoder produces a fuzzy noise effect once in a blue moon for me....it's pretty weird. not really sure why it does that.

    Screaming preteens at concerts are the bane of concert going. Sane people don't spend money to stand in the audience and scream incessantly like idiots.
