Thread Name: Why music sounds worse.
Subject: RE: Why music sounds worse.
I hadn't thought about new audio formats but this thread has set me off. I have a Tom-Tom satnav which also acts as a short-range FM transmitter so I can listen to MP3s via the car radio. I have found that while the car radio works quite hapily on volume setting 6 or 7 I have to turn it up to 10 or more for the transmitted MP3s. It is not affected by the volume control of the satnav as that just seems to turn the spoken directions up or down. Is this an MP3 issue or an FM transmission issue?

Second thing - When CDs came out I worked on the basis that Analoge recording, Analogue Master and Digital Re-master (AAD) was the best combination. Only because someone who seemed to know their stuff told me I hasten to add - I don't realy have a clue:-( Anyhow - Is there a similar rule of thumb for MP3s WAVs or any of the others?
