Peder I listened to the Axel F. samples one after the other without
"dissecting" the sound. I didn't hear a difference, that doesn't mean I
wouldn't hear a difference by an ABX test or by listening to it focused
and for two or three times instead just for one time. However, if there
isn't really significant loss, it doesn't matter, if there is or if
there isn't minimal loss, since the music anyway will sound different on
Btw. I don't need a codec, it's just another layer that could cause
issues, even if it shouldn't cause issues, there always is an additional
risk. I simply store 48KHz WAV recordings.
For my individual dealing with audio recordings I can't imagine why I
ever should use MP3 or any other codec. I don't need data reduction, if
I listen to audio recordings, than I do it "conscious", I never ever
will take a walk and listen to music. When I take a walk I like the
sense perception I get by nature or even by a mega city (I prefer nature
to the city ;).
So even if a codec that was bad yesterday, but might be ok to my taste
today, should be available, I'm not interested, because it is something
additional, that is completely useless for me, but ever additional layer
does include an additional risk.
FLAC is absolutely ok, it's lossless, but I don't use it, because
there's no reason for me to use it.
