    When importing mp3s in itunes, if i switch on VBR is the bit rate i've selected used as the highest or lowest acceptable bit rate?

    If it's the lowest then am i right in assuming that if i'm encoding a 320kbps it should make no difference whether i use VBR or not because i'm already using the maximum bit rate?

    i'm no expert but that sounds about right. you're at the upper limit so variable would only mean negative.

    i like aac @ 256 auto!
