    Ok I'm converting MP3s to put onto my HD1 and I was just wondering which format is better between the Atrac3 132 Kpbs and the Atrac3+ 64kpbs. Is their a noticeable difference between the two? Or can you not really tell the difference?

    If you can't tell the difference I think I'll stick with the Atrac3+ 64kpbs because it is a smaller file.

    Perhaps I shouldn't state the crashingly obvious, but shouldn't you have a listen for yourself? Or is it that you're seeking validation because you can't tell a difference? Because if you can't tell a difference, I'd suggest going for the ATRAC3+ codec.

    I did have a listen but the headphones I have right now are terrible, so I couldn't tell. I do plan on getting better headphones, not top of the line ones by any means though... so my guess is that I still wouldn't be able to tell a difference. So I'm basically looking for some confirmation.

    Converting one Compressed formatt like MP3 to ATRAC, is going to reduced quailty. SO i would be inclided to either get your player up graded to MP3 Surport. OR much better, use the maxium quality. I think its ATRAC Plus 256.

    I'd try not to treat ATRAC and ATRAC plus as being different. 132 Atrac will be better than Atrac Plus 64 Kbps
