"64kbit transcodes"

[stares] [blinks] Well...it plays and it doesn't give me a virus, so that's good enough for me.

Ok.

CD quality files when ripped are uncompressed. When you rip them as an .mp3 file, they become compressed, thus losing audio quality. This is done by limiting the amount of data per second, or kilobytes per second. (kbps) So the lower the kbps, the lower the audio quality.

Considering I'm only "test driving" these albums (purchases may come later if they're any good) it really doesn't bug me. And I believe that the DLs I get are around 160-ish of those doohickies so I don't know if that's good or not...

Well it's either v2, or 160 CBR (Constant Bit Rate)....the latter would make me cringe. But hey, I'm a cheapass audiophile :P

Well...it is what it says it is, it doesn't give me a virus, and it plays. And that's all I really ask of it.

Burbs,

Why did you get 3 copies of the same album?

Burbs,

Cool, makes sense to me, thanks for clearing up the confusion.

Whitenoise,

I'm glad you finally have something you can call me, it makes me feel better about calling you "old man" all the time. Funny enough, my bandmate Mike's sister couldn't remember my name right after I met her, and when she asked Mike about me she referred to me as "the pretty one". Lol.

Jacob,

If you like 'pretty boy', then 'pretty boy' it is. you know it's funny, I had you pictured in my head as blonde for some reason. I guess it's my personal Utah stereotype. Not that it really matters, seeing as how you're already taken haha. No but really someone has to be the pretty one in any group so I guess you're it man. I guess all us long haired dudes get that pretty boy crap at one time or another from somebody, I'm just glad that I'm too old to be called pretty anymore, except by Marko maybe, but he's just jealous. Besides the fact that I cut my long hair awhile back, cuz it's just not metal to be pretty.

The arsis album-Starve for the devil... i "checked it out on myspace" (wink wink)

So far, the new album seems to have more of a thrash influence than the last 3 albums. As you know the quality of "MYSPACE" music is crap... whoever ripped that should be slapped twice... but it seems that everything sounds a bit less precise. But again... its probably a crappy rip. However, other than the slight quality issues of what ive heard... A+ and i will certainly buy it when it drops feb 9th.

You planted the seed the other night, and now I can't get Abagail out of my head. I've been on youtube for like an hour listening to every song they've got there, where does one find these records?? I gotta have these man.

Actually wax...or are you just using the word in place of vinyl? I didn't know that there were still albums being put on wax.
