I recently went from WMP 8 to WMP 9 and I must say its a big improvement. A lot of the little things that bothered me about player 8 were fixed in player 9. I couldn't help noticing the format Windows Media Audio Lossless. I haven't actually heard a disc using this yet but is there a significant increase in sound quality from WMA 192? I hope there is... the file sizes are absolutely huge. Which leads me to my next question, is this basicly a uncompressed file? If it is, now I see why MP3's became so important years ago and why compressing songs were so needed. Has anybody else used WMAL? Is there anything I should know about when using it? (other than keeping an eye on how much hard drive space I have left) Thanks in advance.
