Comparison of Digital Audio Formats!

 

By Jens Adrian

 

 

Several comparison-diagrams regarding the different bitrates can be found here. The bitrates 48 kbps and 112 kbps are dealt with in the tests and the tables but are negligible regarding popularity and importance and thus are not considered in the diagrams.

All tests were performed with this system:
Pentium III 500 MHz
256 MB RAM

More detailed information can be found in the legends.
The highest value ratings of each of the three bitrates is printed bold both in the charts and the tables.
You may also listen to or download sound-samples of the bitrates by clicking the individual bitrates (kbps) in the comparison-tables.

At the end of the diagrams of each song, clear tables are listed that sum up all results again.

John Williams - “Home Alone” - Setting The Trap (table)
Dire Straits - “Brothers In Arms” - So Far Away (table)
