Hi everyone!
Just want to confirm that the Brussels show is available from the Rolling Stones musictoday USA site. I live in Canada and was able to download the FLAC version: Absolute essential live recording; the band is on fire and nice to hear Mick Taylor.!

this whole thing 'I can tell the difference between flac and MP3 at 320' stuff is kinda like 'this wine is a $25 bottle and its better than that $15 bottle.' whatever, it still gets you pissed. just enjoy the music. Personally, I don't want to waste my effort straining to listen for barely audible differences, it wrecks the enjoyment of the moment.

It's definitely not the same thing.

FLAC (or any other lossless compression format) means you get at least the CD quality. MP3 (even those from Google Music) means you get something inferior in sound to CD quality.
If you try to compare high quality MP3 vs FLAC while listening on iPod or any other MP3 player, you may not hear the difference that well. Now try to burn FLAC files on a CD and MP3 files on a CD, you will hear the difference. Music with the CD burned from MP3 will be less defined, will sound more "light", voices range will be shorter, trebles will not go as high as with a FLAC sourced CD and so on...

CD's were already a downgrade from vinyl. Why should we now have no choice but to buy a downgrade from CD? That's what major online music shops (iTunes, Amazon... and now Google) are doing for 10 years now.

The problem is this MP3 hegemony is also affecting the sound quality of CD's. Because producers and artists know their music will be sold as MP3 anyway (thanks iTunes) they're making their albums "MP3 proof" by using a maximum level of dynamic compression on them, so that they will still "sound good" even when sold as average rate MP3 files. By the way that's what happened to the recently remastered Rolling Stones albums...

The first part of your post makes some sense but,the second part does not make any sense at all to me. Listening to lossless FLAC files doesn't REQUIRE any more effort than listening to compressed MP3's. Sure,depending on the variable factors which I listed earlier in this thread,some people may have to listen more closely to notice a difference however,critical listening is not a requirement. You can just as easily sit back and enjoy the lossless music as you would with any other audio format.

* The software to play lossless FLAC files on your computer is FREE.

* The price premium for lossless FLAC files is low in many cases. 2 dollars for Brussels '73 as 16 bit files ; roughly 3 dollars for Some Girls deluxe as 24 bit files versus the 16 bit two CD set . .... In other instances such as some of Tom Petty's recent releases and re-releases,there is no price difference.

* In the case that your home audio equipment doesn't support FLAC and / or your portable audio / MP3 player doesn't support FLAC,the software to convert the FLAC files to lossless WAV files is FREE. If you can't play 24 bit WAV files,you can convert them to CD grade 16 bit WAV files with FREE software. None of this takes much time or effort.

The only semi-valid argument is that lossless files take up more space on your storage devices than degraded files. That argument,however,is becoming more and more irrelevant each year as larger storage capacities grow and become cheaper.

* You can get an enormous 1.5 TB internal or external hard drive for between $ 90 and $ 135 which can hold over 1,000 or over 2,000 lossless ALBUMS depending on how it's configured or how you configure it. (Most 1.5 TB hard drives are actually two 750 GB hard drives in one enclosure. In many cases,you can choose either to have the full 1.5 TB of storage or you can have 750 GB of storage "mirrored" in a RAID configuration in case one of the two hard drives fails !! ) 2 TB hard drives are available as well and I doubt that it will be long before their cost drops even further + it won't be long until larger capacity hard drives become available.

Let's flip the tables here. What exactly is the big advantage of MP3's ???? I know that people generally resist change. I know that Apple doesn't support FLAC but they do support WAV files and they have their own " lossless " format although I am not convinced that it's quite as " lossless " as FLAC. Am I missing something???? Nobody claims MP3 is better sounding than lossless audio except for one study that found some young college students had become conditioned to prefer MP3's higher pitch,more thin sound. There's no legitamate reason to go with degraded audio that I am aware of unless you can't afford to spend an extra 2 or 3 dollars.

true for most music, but the mp3 advantage is simply that it is a SMALL file. All songs are files now, (except tape and vinyl) and we are still in a soceity where a quick download is more valuable (to some) than big lossless, "too big/long to download on AOL" file.

The fact is that some music sounds just as good as an .mp3, mainly simple vocal guita stuff and amazingly sometimes even other more complicated tracks. The difference is for a typical 3 minute song, an .mp3 is 3 MB and a wav file is 30 to 90 MB. That's an exploitable size difference if you live in Zimbabwe and are using a 56K modem.

Mp3's were created as the small audio file to be included with .mpeg VIDEO. Do some blind listening tests of your own, you just might be very surprised at the comparison. Thin is NOT always the case with the .mp3 files. I could go on but it's gets technical from here. peace.

but you two must be American,am I mistaken ?

filet mignon, when found on a menu in France, generally refers to pork rather than beef.
However, some butchers in the United States label all types of tenderloin steaks "filet mignon"

If you ask in French restaurants for a "filet mignon" ,you'll get pork winking smiley

[en.wikipedia.org]
L'habitude a été prise aux États-Unis d'employer l'expression « filet mignon » (en français) pour désigner le filet de bœuf, voire tout steak tendre. Le consommateur américain est dès lors pris au dépourvu dans les pays francophones, où il croit reconnaître sur une carte un filet mignon de bœuf et où on lui sert en général du porc, donc de la viande blanche. Inversement, le consommateur francophone qui commande un filet mignon dans une zone de culture nord-américaine peut être surpris de se voir servir du bœuf.

In the world of red meat, however, some people can't tell the difference between horse and beef.
I ate horse only once ,but the taste has nothing yo do with beef.
So strong that I almost threw up.
Plus eating horse meat is somehow disturbing for me ,since I saw how the horses that waited to be killed behaved .
Anyway, in the part of the world I live ,that is to say France, filet mignon is pork .Not horse meat .

Could what be?? Like you quoted above,the software to convert FLAC to WAV or to MP3 or to OGG is free. Without looking it up,I would say that there is roughly a 90 % chance that the Galaxy phone supports lossless WAV files.

The free software to convert FLAC to WAV is available to download at the official web-site of FLAC. [flac.sourceforge.net] + [flac.sourceforge.net] . It takes me only 1 minute and a half on average to convert a 1 CD sized album.

There is an extra step if you want to degrade the resulting WAV files to either other lower res WAV files,compressed MP3,or OGG files etc.. The software to accomplish this is,however, once again free.

<<There is an extra step if you want to degrade the resulting WAV files <<


I think there are some misunderstandings.

I don't listen music on my cell unless I have some spared times-in my car or at my dentist's "waiting room"

I listen music on my turntable, on my CDs player ,on the surround home player.

- that's not what I said, read harder. It seems you edited (or mangled, depending how you look at it) my post to serve your own purposes. You edited out the whole bolded red part, which changes the meaning and context completely. Feel free to comment, but hey i see no need to quote mangle. What I actually said was I detect little difference; not enough to matter to me. I didn't say one is 'better' over the other. I made a facetious statement about hypothetically doing a sonic comparison, which I would never be bothered to do (although I am sure some would), because I detect little difference anyway. Comprenez-vous?

I don't need to read "harder". I understand the language. In black and white,you posted :


" so its better, because really, what difference does it make? "


So,based on that alone,my post was completely legitimate. What makes "it" better??

Aside from that,I didn't quote the middle part of your post because,I was not responding to that part of the post which is quite a common practice here.

Now,in response to that part of the post,why is the burden on lossless formats (such as FLAC) to make people "jump up and down"???? I think that burden,if anywhere,should be placed on the compressed files.

Personally,the whole "it is only a little tiny bit worse" stance is not going to inspire me to switch to compressed music.
