Re: Seeking a Rough Quality Comparison

JM Casey
 

I believe that my answer is the most objective one .. not to sound pompous,
but while I hardly use .m4a files and don't know a lot about them
specifically, I have done research on stuff like this and I believe using a
slightly higher bitrate than the original will get you best possible results
(not an improvement though mind you, you'll never get that).
128kBPS is not at all CD quality by the way, as has already been said. It's
actually quite a poor transfer. 256k is *close* to CD quality; 320 would be
best if you really want things to sound as close to original as possible. I
sometimes wonder though if at that point you may as well just use lossless.

While what you say makes sense, I'm not sure that is really what is being
asked but I could be wrong. We know that a 128KBPS MP3 is said to be
approximately CD quality, so 160KBPS would presumably be a little better.
We might disagree whether that is truly better than a CD, but I think we
would all agree that 160KBPS is better sounding that 32 or 64KBPS stereo.
So where does 160KBPS MP3 settings fit into M4A settings to get
approximately the same quality? There may not be an answer we could
absolutely agree on, but one would think there would be some approximate
corresponding setting.

Hi List.

Can anyone in the know provide me with a rough idea of what the equivalent
kbs would be for a m4a file when compared to a 160 mp3 version?

I probably haven't explained that very well.

If I have a file saved at 96kbs m4a, what would a rough approximation to
this be for an mp3 file? Would it be 128kbs or 160 kbs for example?

I've tried finding some kind of guide on the web, but haven't been able to

Re: Seeking a Rough Quality Comparison

Smiling?
 

Saying that 44.1KHz at 128kbps is CD quality is extensively inaccurate, but
I too hear this from many who think it actually has validity. 44.1KHz at
128kbps is just the default settings to a lot of rippers, nothing more and
nothing less.

What .CDA quality actually is is very similar to 100% uncompressed wave
files which are created at 16bit 44.1KHz. what you the user selectively
chooses to rip these tracks at is the actual question.

What truly seemed to be being asked in that question (at least with my
limited perspective anyway), is how certain bitrates of .M4A files how
they'd compare to .MP3 files and which bitrate would be recommended which
again, is always a matter of perspective. Which is why I explained it the
way that I did, because always, it's a matter of perspective as is
everything and best for the individual with the actual ears to hear to
determine.

Re: Seeking a Rough Quality Comparison

JM Casey
 

Hey.

I think your best bet might be to use a *slightly* higher bitrate than the
original. This will in theory mean that you will lose less quality when
transcoding from lossy to lossy format. This is up for some debate, I
believe. You could also use the same bitrate (160 in this case) and see if
you notice a difference. But as space probably isnt' a huge consideration at
this point -- my choice would probably be to use 192. I don't think there
would be much point in going higher as you won't be able to improve on
what's already in the .m4a.

Re: Olympus DM-720 Question

Katrina Anderson
 

Well, the answer to that can depend on a couple of things. If you exited the menus as I instructed, and if you were already in a folder before you went into the menus, you will turn the recorder on and be in the same folder you were in before. Turning off the recorder automatically takes you out of the menu settings. However, depending upon whether you were in a folder before you went into the settings, will depend upon what happens when you turn the recorder on. When you turn the recorder on, tap the play button. If a recording does not play, or if the boys doesn’t say “file not found”, tap the play button again. Keep tapping the play button until you hear a recording you have made or you here “file not found”. That should put you inside of a folder, possibly in folder “a” if this doesn’t help, tell me what you hear or what happens and I will try again.

Tom,

I understand what you are saying. Good luck going through the menu. In case it helps, steps for changing battery type via menu follow.
1. There are three buttons under the display. Tap the middle button. You will hear ” file menu”.
2. Down arrow repeatedly until you hear “ Device settings”.
3. Tap the play button. Also known as the OK button.
4.Tap down arrow repeatedly until you hear something about battery.
5. Down arrow and till you hear nickel metal hydride.
6. Tap the play button.
7. Tap the stop button, or tap left arrow several times until you hear a series of beeps indicating you are out of the menus.

As for opening the battery door, I really do understand how difficult it can be. However, in case it would be helpful, consider the following.
1. Position the recorder so that the microphone is at the top and you are looking at the back.
2. I believe you found the button that has to be pushed in, use one hand to push in on this button.
3. Use the other hand to touch the battery door left of the button. The door is quite long. So you can use multiple fingers, and you don’t have to touch immediately left of the button. Push in on the battery door a little bit. Slide the door to your left as you are pushing in on the door. You can release the button at this point.
Good luck,
Katrina

Tom, I recall that there is some kind of setting in the Olympus to tell it
not to try and recharge the battery that's in it when it's plugged into a
USB port. So, if you can't find this setting, try not to leave it plugged
into a USB port for a long time, or you might explode the alkaline battery.

Failing that, rechargeable AAA's are easy to find, and not terribly
expensive.

Katrina: Yes...your directions were quite helpful! I got the battery thing in its correct setting now! So now the next time I power the recorder up, where will I be as far as the menu is concerned? Has been a little while since I've used this recorder, so I've kind of forgotten exactly how everything works and what button does what!

Tom,

I understand what you are saying. Good luck going through the menu. In case it helps, steps for changing battery type via menu follow.
1. There are three buttons under the display. Tap the middle button. You will hear ” file menu”.
2. Down arrow repeatedly until you hear “ Device settings”.
3. Tap the play button. Also known as the OK button.
4.Tap down arrow repeatedly until you hear something about battery.
5. Down arrow and till you hear nickel metal hydride.
6. Tap the play button.
7. Tap the stop button, or tap left arrow several times until you hear a series of beeps indicating you are out of the menus.

As for opening the battery door, I really do understand how difficult it can be. However, in case it would be helpful, consider the following.
1. Position the recorder so that the microphone is at the top and you are looking at the back.
2. I believe you found the button that has to be pushed in, use one hand to push in on this button.
3. Use the other hand to touch the battery door left of the button. The door is quite long. So you can use multiple fingers, and you don’t have to touch immediately left of the button. Push in on the battery door a little bit. Slide the door to your left as you are pushing in on the door. You can release the button at this point.
Good luck,
Katrina

The easiest way to do this follows:

back in.
2. Power on the unit. When prompted to select type of battery, choose nickel
metal hydride.

Re: Olympus DM-720 Question

Its only really an issue for charging the battery using the USB connector.
However, you should be able to set it in the device menu, by pressing the middle button below the screen to enter the menus and arrowing up to device. I can't recall exactly where the setting is right now.

Press down and slide it, and it should work.

Hello list: Have sort of a "low-tech" question: I need to change the
battery/batteries in my Olympus DM-720 recorder; I know this is probably
a
stupid question, but where is the place on the back of this recorder to
open
the battery compartment? Also, once I have found it (and I think maybe I
have found it) how do I cause the little door to open? I've pressed on
this
button that seems to be pressing in.but no soap; the door still does not
open! What is the magic mov I need to make in order to make the door
open
for me? I'm not real good at these sort of things; something I don't
fully
understand why! Do I have to "push and slide at the same time? Just
what
is it I need to do here? Forgive my stupitidy here, but your help will
be
tgreatly appreciated!
