Latexxx Hero Member Joined: 12 May, 2003 Posts: 844 Logged ATRAC3 superior or inferior to mp3 ? more impressed with SS 2.0. Thus there might be a strong bias for ATRAC in both tests.

Just brainstorming... I'm not sure what's the limmit for the length since I tested all limmits that are mentioned around the net and all seemed to be untrue, all worked well. Open GoldWave (the program) and drag-and-drop your audio file inside the gray/empty field. Creating an high quality audio codec for hardware is much more difficult than for software, due to constraints as complexity, battery life etc. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/atrac3s.80801/

Perhaps a good codec should not sound good, but reproduce in a transparent way.

from looking at spectrograms (please don't hit me), ATRAC3 seems derivative of mp3 in many respects, whereas ATRAC (SP mode) is a completely different beast.of course that says nothing of the Sony to dump Connect music service - (August 31st, 2007) Sony acknowledged that its proprietary ATRAC music format was a market flop by shutting down all its Connect music stores and Reply With Quote 05-12-2004,02:45 PM #108 Unregistered Re: ATRAC3 & ATRAC3Plus Support to correct an earlier post :- Atrac3Plus is supported on HiMD and Atrac CD Walkman units. You can ignore it and close Goldwave since you don't need it anymore.

Thread Status: Not open for further replies. We haven't done any testing on ATRAC3Plus at 256kbit modes so I don't think it's easy to conclude. http://www.last.fm/user/spase-spase- spase Hero Member Joined: 22 October, 2001 Posts: 773 Logged MPC -insane vs. What you will need: - Those files: http://www.mediafire.com/?pbracy5iire7y1s - Your audio file you want to use.

MP3 is old too, but it wasn't designed with particular hardware specifications in mind, and certainly it didn't really show up until much later than MiniDisc did.

I would re-download them but i have around 400 songs, along with a slow internet connection, so you can see the difficulty. http://www.head-fi.org/t/133125/normalizing-atrac3s-quality-issues Full Review RHA CL1 Ceramic Reviewed by daduy Disclaimer I got this unit as part of Australia/New Zealand tour arranged by @RHA Team, thank you very much for including Does anyone know any good programs for this purpose?

LP4 is really bad and suffers from joint-stereo artifacts and such, and is probably only useful for recording lectures. I may have to go to my local HiFi store and use my CDRs on their high end CD players (if any will read CDRs yet) with a good amp and There is not a linear correlation between the two.QuoteIs it possible, that a bad codec colours the sound file in such a way, that it actually sounds better but not authentic Reply #6 – 09 July, 2004, 12:40:09 AM heh.

Obviously this testing would be alot easier if I could simply upgrade my equipment, although buying a pretty good headphone amp and perhaps a sound card might be sufficient.If I do granted i dont have an optical out on any equipment here... My main complaint is that you have to import every music file (or folder) that you want to burn to an atrac disk into the simple burner 2 library first. That minidisc player cost me somewhere around $700 and the DAT replacement was around $800 and I never regretted that decision for a second. -=Ducky=- Newbie Joined: 21 April, 2002 Posts:

There seems to be some differences in formatting and some sort of DRM security built in.
