Successors of MP3

  提起音频有损压缩格式,第一个映入脑海的就是MP3。MP3向来就是很好的格式,有人说MP3的音质不好,那是由于他听的MP3不是Lame编码器编码的,Lame早已是公认的最好的MP3编码器。 不过再好的格式也有它淘汰的时候。MP3现已老态龙钟,是它寿终正寝的时辰了。 MP3的特性 MP3在128kbp以下的编码音质是现存编码里最差的。即便是128kbps音质也很一般。这限制了其灵活性。 Joint Stereo & VBR可变比特率是MP3特别是Lame的强项,在平均187kbps左右下MP3的效率极高,所以自己压缩MP3,平均比特率在160-190是最佳选择,这也是MP3的用途所在。 在平均220kbps左右的高比特率下MP3的效率低于MPC等格式,所以不推荐使用。 MP3的适用性最广,否则早就淘汰了。 AAC – The Successor of MP3 Bundled with mpeg4, AAC is designed to be the successor of MP3. 从设计上来看,AAC的效率要比MP3高很多。AAC使更多的音频信息得以保留,特别是MP3处理不好的的高音部分,所以听起来要比MP3清晰很多。 128kbps的AAC就已经很不错了,相对于VBR MP3又优点但也有差距。VBR 160kbp的AAC我认为是最佳选择。 Flac – Personal Favorite Flac – Free Lossless … Continue reading
