Question: Is 320 kbps mp3 best music quality? Which quality and extension (m4a, flac) you prefer for general listening? Also a bonus question, which is your most favourite Billie Eilish song? :D

    I'm pretty happy with mp3 @ 192kbps. I don't know any Billie Eilish songs.

    Listen to Billie Eilish's Ocean Eye song. It's very beautiful :)

    By the way, any reason why do you prefer 192 kbps mp3? Why not higher than it? Because 192 kbps cut-off frequency is around 19 KHz (very near to the higher limit of human audible range?)

    I might (if I remember to bother) -- re: 192kbps, it's not that I prefer it to 320, just that (with a modern encoder) 192 (and 19kHz) is good enough for me
