Hello all,
Can u tell me which is better, in your opinion, for storing music files in media, mp3 or wma.

if you want better clarity then wma

if you want better compression mp3

I use MP3, not because it is better but because my aging MP3 player will not read wma files.
I am given to understand that wma files are smaller than MP3 while giving the same sound quality, therefore you can put more songs on a MP3 player providing it can read them.

I suggest you pick a track of music and convert it to MP3 and wma and see what you think is best.
