Then this argument is useless. You have been bickering about this the entire time for nothing. I hope for your sake you are a audiophile, otherwise you're arguing a moot case here.

Uhh.. dude, read my posts. With my level of knowledge of the topic, you think I might be into audio? Duh.

Also, I ain't the one 'bickering'. I'm simply telling peeps how audio works, and (some of them, at least) are debating the most obvious things, either 'cus they don't know that much about audio, or 'cus they desperately want VCast Music to be a hit ('cus they work for Verizon?), or both.

Honestly, now that you can't backup (with numbers) your arguement of degredation of quality, I will ignore all rants and raves which have to do with this topic of loss in quality upon conversion.

That's your problem, not mine. I was honest with you, and told you the truth: audio is somewhat subjective. People DO have different levels of hearing acuity. Different listening appartuses DO offer different levels of quality/detail. Given that, people's results will vary. Unless you'd like to argue that everyone hears the same, and that $7 headphones sound as good as $150 ones?

Sure, I could have Google'd around for some numbers, but why bother if they're not going to apply to YOUR situation? Waste of my time and yours.

Oh, and also is there any direct evidence stating that the WM10 will NOT be able to preserve quality at 100% during conversion? I'm not talking about general conversion, but with programming these days, you never know. They might have hit a breakthrough.

Yes. The fact that WMA a lossy codec. Lossy codecs, by definition, LOSE information. That is why they are called 'lossy'.

For our next lesson, we will define the term 'audio'. Rolling Eyes
