    Hi. I have tried Nero Mp3Pro at highest quality
    with a couple of different settings.

    Is there anything better than this for quality.
    I can sacrifice size for best quality please.

    RealOne? others?

    Thanks,
    Tim Mainka :)

    This is your lucky day. The best mp3 encoder out there is called 'Lame', and it is a free, DOS style encoder. It will take a little while to learn, but it is completely amazing; with pop music, I often can't tell the difference between the .mp3 and the .wav. Look it up.

    If you're really looking for high quality, go for a lossless format like APE or FLAC. MP3 is so dated that it's not even funny anymore.
