With the amaroK ABX-Comparator you can determine the perfect audio codec settings for your personal equipment (including your ears...).

First choose or create two audio files. One file should be the reference and the other the challenger ( the "A"-file and the "B"-file),
for example FLAC against vorbis q6 or mp3 at 160 kbs versus mp3 at 128 kbs and so on.
A good source for listining examples is www.ff123.net .

Then one of the two files is randomly chosen (the "X"-file). You can now listen to the 'A'-file and the 'B'-file and try to determine the 'X'-file
(That's why it's called an ABX-test.). To avoid sheer guessing you have to do this several times. After your "probability that you were guessing" is sunken under 1%, you could be fairly sure, that there is no difference for you between the two files.

So, if you are still encoding your mp3s at 1000 kbs, ABX it out if you hear a difference to ogg vorbis at q6!

this is soooo cool, I know a lot of audiofreaks that'll LOVE this feature. This is a killer for some people, believe me... can you try to get this as a standard plugin in amaroK?

I compared an mp3 at 253kbps to ogg q-1 and couldn't tell the difference. (50% like) thats pretty sad. on a brighter note, i guess that means i can save a bunch of space on my harddrive.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
