I'd just like to add that MP3 compression sounds glassy in
the treble range and inconsistent in the bass, while Ogg
Vorbis offers more solid bass and clearer treble. The Ogg
Vorbis compression algorithm is also more efficient, so a
similar quality .ogg will have a smaller file size than
the equivalent .mp3 (and a similar size .ogg will have
higher fidelity.) Plus, Ogg Vorbis is free of patent
restrictions. This thread is going nowhere fast. I'd love
to hear some well-documented reasons why MP3s are superior
... and failing that, I'd like a pony..
