well, if there is no diference between 128kbps mp3 and 1000kbps flac, i will eat my hat immideately. i dont know what type of ears author of this article has but i would recommend trying to listen music in two formats i mentioned above.

I think with regards to FLAC, you also need to have at least decent equipment to enjoy it.

Extended Warranty....I would recommend it for Dell users. Things normally go bad after year 2.
