    It reminds me a little back in early 90´s when MP3 gets popular and makes its way.
    128 kbit "seems" to be enough. :-)))

    Wow, I've never seen that. I've only ever had chinese MP3 players back then, and a walkman even before that (CD's). https://youtu.be/KMZ4kkSVrBw

    Converting a CD at this times was................"very cozy".
    In general, if the CD drive did not play along ..

    MP3 converting takes a loong time with a ~166 Mhz single Core CPU and 4x CD Rom.Near "realtime" ripping and converting.
    Meanwhile you can get a nap or a meal or watch a Movie with popcorn,this sort of "cozy". :-))

    Ohh haha, I see. A 4x CD speed sounds crazy, I've only used 32+. Reminds me of the days I burned DVDs using Nero to watch Scooby Doo, still took forever. :P

    You probably have bad headphones? I have good quality headphones and music doesn't sound bad to me.
