But you cannot play those recordings - such as cds, vcds - in the ear phones! There is actually a wave of sound - so called masking noise - that obscures the music. And, if you need to encode your music for a CD, a compressed 128Kbps MP3 will be too low a bitrate for a CD. If you need to encode your music for a vcd, a compressed 512Kbps MP3 will be way too low - and even 8-bit MP3 (at 16Kbps) is too low for an vcd. The DVD Audio standard is 4.3-6.4-8.8-12-bit - and even 32-bit is better than MP3. Is a vcd worth the effort? I guess there are enough of people who will listen to the damn thing and enjoy the silence....
