High bit rate mp3's sound about the same as cd's
A 320 bit rate mp3 copy from a good source it pretty hard to tell from a CD .
Most people use the low bit rate pushed by Apple and Pandora which is defiantly low fidelity.
There was a program about this on NPR where they found that people raised on the low
bit rate stuff actually prefer it to Hi Fidelity sources.
Quantity over quality has been the rule when people load up there storage devices.
There is so much space on usb sticks now you can use any format you want.
