I generally don't care for MP3's but I was considering making mix CD's for a party. Of course, a CD filled with MP3's would hold a lot more and I won't be changing CD's as often. The five disc changer doesn't last that long depending on which CD's I have in it. If I use a high sampling rate when I make the MP3's, will it be very noticable on an average setup? By average I mean low to mid range equipment. Old speakers, etc. All MP3's would be from my cd collection. I never download them. I would be able to control the sampling rate. Thanks! If the quality compromise isn't worth saving the space I'll stick to wavs.
