apropos nothing at all, had a small nerdgasm on learning FMU has an AAC stream i was previously unaware of. my terribad ears prolly can't hear the difference but i've convinced myself it's acres better.
Avatar 11:08pm Scott McDowell:

must be !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Zetti:

I think the AAC sounds best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm chresti:

I've got to leave this pleasant suspension in time and hit the hay. Thanks Scott, goodnight everyone!
Avatar 11:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Night chresti !
...I am sometimes struck by how good it sounds. Tho' this may be because my ears sometimes don't have WiFi to hear FMU for weeks on end @ all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

g'night chrestí
Avatar 11:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...one listener did comment he didn't like Appe codecs - tho the wider consensus seems to be AAC is better than the other 128K stream @ the same bandwidth...
Avatar 11:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

i didn't know aac is an apple invention (or acquisition)
now i don't like it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

...i just looked into aac. it's not an apple thing. i can go back to thinking it sounds better now.
Avatar 11:23pm NikiA:

Hi Chresti, Coel, et al. Nice to see everyone and I am grateful for the company tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm coelacanth∅:

hi Niki... you alright?
  11:26pm devlawn:

I think the history of apple/AAC is they choose used it from itunes because they could DRM the files.
  11:27pm devlawn:

*for itunes
Avatar 11:27pm dk:

yeah, apple didn't invent aac — just adopted it, likely for reasons both technological (it typically does better at the same bitrates than MP3) and political (at the time they adopted it, aac encoders were a bit harder to get your hands on than mp3, so using it could potentially convey a proprietary advantage). it's not so much DRM per se — you could wrap any format in DRM.
Avatar 11:30pm NikiA:

@Chresti Yeah, I am all right. I just have a flight early morning and everything that could possibly go wrong today, did. Stressed, but will be ok. Thank you <3
