Dunadan Posted July 7, 2004 Report Share Posted July 7, 2004 I have a 192kbps mp3 Bjork song (yea, yea, it's Bjork. but it has a strong, large range of sounds and so it's great for hearing the difference between differently compressed versions). I was listening to it on my HiMD at Atract3-132kbps. I was hearing some major noise (loud cracking at points) which was not on the mp3, so i created a Atrac3plus@256 file from the mp3 and transfered it assuming it would be perfect. The noise is still there!! At Atrac3plus@256!! At this point I thought somthing was wrong with my usb connection. So, I erased the omg files and tried playing the just the mp3 within SonicStage. There was still the loud crackling noise -- just playing MP3. When I play the 192kbps mp3 in Winamp and in Windows Media player there is no noise. This is horrible! Is the mp3 decoder in SonicStage bad? Any ideas? I usually laugh when i see people say this, but Im about to bring my 600d back to the store. Dunadan Edit: PS A couple other mp3s with big bass beats have this mp3 playback problem too (crackling). Ive had an MD player (MZ-R700) for 3 years and loved it (until my roomate dropped it from a little too high off the ground). However I can't live with this model if it can't play mp3s at at least the same quality. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
