I recently converted some songs wav to mp3 in easy cd-da extractor and when i loaded it into headac3he it had a channel mode of joint-stereo. If next time i was to encode the wav into mp3 with headac3he what channel would be best, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each channel?

Thanks

I NEVER use joint stereo as this destroys significant the surround effect!

Even Music Tracks do sound encoded in stereo MUCH better on my Dolbysuroundsystem, once joint stereo is choosen the rearchannels are almost off in case of musictracks and destroyed in case of movie audio tracks where a surroundmatrix is included.

So what's the preferred channel mode for mp3's? Stereo or Dual?
And for it to be cd-quality, it should be 192kps?

I was just wondering when encoding an wav to mp3, is it better to use headac3he instead of easy cd-da extractor as it allows you to adust lame's configuation. I tried using headac3he but there were all their settings, could you help? eg. mode, bitrate-min,ave,max and so.

Thanks a lot

- stereo (kwag recommends dual channel, but my Surround decoder does not reproduce that type that well)
- 192kbit (in case of audio and 128kbit in case of KVCD or KDVD)
- psy= 2
- CBR

192 in case of audio cause most mp3s are already encoded using 128kbit and a re-encode at the same low bitrate would end much worse! So give that already low source encoding "room to breath" by using 192kbit.
