    I have more HDD space than I could ever fill with FLAC files, so to me, I'm not trading off anything. Also, I only have a 2.1 system, even though it's relatively high end.

    Well I'm not one of decent income, so. :(

    People should check out Nick Drake. Dude can change lives.

    If you have WinRAR I can send you an assload of stuff, Mortified. Sure, not in FLAC. <_< But pretty much at least 192 - 360 KBPS. <_<

    192... bleh.

    I downloaded an album a few days ago only to discover it was encoded 96kbps. Needless to say, that got redownloaded.

    First gen black metal + lo-fi KBPS = Sounds better than at 320. XD

    192 is as low as I go, usually, and that's on few occasions, though depending on what the artist is, though. Like listening to Nick Drake and other folk it doesn't even matter if it's even 128. It sounds crystal clear and perfect either way.

    I won't go lower than a V2 or O4 for albums but prerelease singles I go as low as 128kbps, soon as its released I go for usually a 192/V2

    APC...ew...

    I just realized something. Funkadelic's Maggot Brain changed a lot of the music I listened to also.

    Not just the title track, the whole album, but the title track alone is epic:

    What's wrong with APC?

    Serious question, not a personal attack.

    A lot of people don't like either APC or Tool because of their dark lyrical content, but personally I like their musical diversity. They use effectively different time signatures and styles, and their sound is unmistakable..

    APC and Tool are both boring, nothing special bands. APC far worse in terms of originality, diversity, and quality than Tool, but that doesn't stop Tool from being pretty damn...blegh most of the time.

    Opinion? Meh, go listen to more of the same genre of each. You'll see.
