Most of us blindly down­load MP3 files that we ul­ti­mately end up lis­ten­ing to on high-end au­dio sys­tems. But a reg­u­lar MP3 is just not good enough for a hi-fi sys­tem be­cause it does not have all the au­dio in­for­ma­tion in the orig­i­nal record­ing. Since MP3, in all its forms, loses some amount of in­for­ma­tion, it is al­ways bet­ter to get mu­sic in loss­less for­mats like FLAC or Ap­ple Loss­less if you are play­ing on a good sys­tem. Yes, th­ese files will be con­sid­er­ably heavy, but the qual­ity of the play­back will be much su­pe­rior. For the best MP3 au­dio qual­ity en­sure that your files have a 320Kbps bi­trate – most of the files we have is 128 Kbps, which is what you hear on the ra­dio as well. Keep 128 Kbps as the rock­bot­tom as far as au­dio qual­ity is con­cerned and you will not re­gret the ex­pe­ri­ence.
