    Which is Better, the one that is built in the DSI that uses AAC format or The moonshell 2 music player?

    In terms of Volume and quality of the sound it produces..

    I personally use the DSi sound cause of its cool functions.
    The only good music feature about moonshell is that it can make the sound level 150 %

    Making the sound go beyond 100% really impacts the quality making it pretty annoying to listen too.

    hmm, if i use the moonshell player, my music is more organized, same quality but more battery consumption

    BUT, if i use the one in the dsi, music is not organized, and you have to open the ds just to play the next song, there is no shortcut or using the r or l trigger when changing the songs, the good part is less battery consumption,

    I'd say moonshell is better, because it can play more formats. The DSi one is more fun though. [​IMG]

    You seriously can't tell the difference?! I'm very picky about my sound qualities, though the quality is not the same at all when the volume is increased over 150%.

    DSi Sound is cool with all the effects and whatnot, but Moonshell has slightly better sound quality IMHO.

    Hell.
    I'd have to say Moonshell, just because the .aac format is a bit awkward and requires conversion, at least until we get something like Ntunes [​IMG] (You know it's coming.)

    Oh sorry lol, though I've tried Moonshell 2 and the quality isn't that good when it is increased over 100%

    Isn't the acc higher music quality than mp3s?

    aac is propriety and owned by apple (i think)
    mp3 is propriety also but lots of people use it.

    No, ACC is better encoded than MP3.
    That means you can have the same audio quality as MP3 for a smaller filesize or a better audio quality than mp3 for the same filesize.

    But OGG is pretty good too, and guess what? Moonshell supports it, and a buttload of other music formats.
    I'm all about Moonshell personally, I can sort my music into folders, and I can use it more easily than DSiSound by far.
