    Is it just me, or isn't EAC (Windoze) have better encoders than iTunes does? I mean, sure I have used Apple Lossless and so forth for my home. However, for my ipod mini, I have to convert to 128 or 320 to get any kind of decent sound. Before I converted to the "mac"side, I used EAC consistantly. I loved using the LAME encoder VBR setting alt standard ~320. The music has a more crisp sound than some of the muffledness I get with acc 128.

    Can iTunes do all this and I'm missing something?

    iTunes LAME encoder

    also you can always pick i higher bit-rate than 128AAC, such as 192AAC ect. just remember the higher the bit-rate the larger the file too.

    OK. I just tried the alt preset standard with the lame encoder. It's ripping at 1.6x
