So I'm trying to do some experiments to see at what bit rates I can hear the differences between an mp3 file and the original. I am using EAC with the LAME encoder, but it does it all automatically for me. If I try to change the bit rate in the "Compression Options" menu, it doesn't actually do anything. I think that this has to do with the command line options that are automatically filled in. Right now it is set to 192kbps and has the command line option as "%l--alt-preset 128%l%h--alt-preset standard%h %s %d". But, all my mp3s turn out around an average bit rate of 217kbps. This even happens if I change the drop down menu to 40kbps or anything else. Help is appreciated! Thanks.
