View Full Version : Looking for the most efficient conversion

12-31-2008, 09:52 AM
Now that I have several Howard Stern recordings in *.asf format at 51 kbps, I would like to convert them to MP3.

If I convert them to 128 kbps, it will simply take up a lot of space and not improve the audio quality as the master is 51k.

I see there are other options such as 64K and 32K. 32K will defenitely reduce the audio quality.

I assume the most efficient conversion would be a conversion to MP3 at 51K. Is this possible?

IIf Replay Converter could not do this, I was wondering if Microsoft Encoder would do this for me?

Windows Media Encoder actually installs several utilities that allow me to trim the asf files and preserve the origional data. No conversion needed. I may simply keep the files in asf
