View Full Version : May i ask for an opinion?

2011-01-20, 03:15 AM
This is a 2000 recording of unknown origin (3 sec. samples)... I'd say "lossy", but doesn't it cut off TOO early for mp3 compression??

Any opinions are appreciated, thanks in advance!

its lossy for sure!

As well as the cutoff look at the telltale hyphen-shaped artifacts. give a listen, you should be able to hear it especially this one since its lower-than-average bitrate.

Thanks Five, i'll give it a closer listen then...

Guess it's a very low bitrate mp3 codec then? Anyway, thanks for the feedback! :thumbsup

ugliness... it's either 80kbps MP3 (or worse) or maybe Real Audio or some junk like that. The audio has been destroyed.
