    What are your LAME settings?

    Hey all,
    I'm trying to tune my MP3 creation at home. I usually use a high-level VBR setting, but I'm not sure how I want to tune LAME. What are you guys using? Thanks!

    That appears to be a good monitor. I've been reading the monitor reviews on behardware.com lately. They really seem to put stuff through some thorough benchmarking.

    Hopefully pretty far. These guys are probably legit. WARF has a great reputation, and they DID do a presentation on their idea to Intel, who declined interest, but seem to have used the idea anyway.

    Yeah, but in most of the country, this is more than offset by the reduced fuel consumption and pollution at the power plant.
