CBR 320 is the best quality you can get with an MP3

VBR 320-320 is pointless because you're only allowing the bitrate to be 320, so you might as well choose CBR 320 (which is the highest bitrate for an mp3). VBR with 32-320 will give you a good quality and lower file size because areas in the music that don't have much complexity will be encoded in a lower bitrate, and more complex sound will have a higher bitrate.

of course, this is all assuming you are encoding from a lossless file (wav/flac), if you are encoding a lossy file over to an mp3 then it will always be worse than the original.


Current status of Winamp: (Winamp 5.8) is not an ongoing project get wacup

5.8 beta issue quick fix - Install 5.666 (there's no further 5.8 releases)
