  • It took a full 2 minutes (that's 44 kBps), which was slow enough to convince me I'd gotten a lemon (I copied the same files to my old Sandisk Cruzer 1 gb in 20 seconds). Gold Box Deals 2010

  • I was pretty satisfied with my connection until three days ago when all I can get was around 44 kBps when torrenting.

  • Higher quality MP3's generally use 192 kBps, This is what I like because it gives a good balance between quality and size.

  • Higher quality music has higher bit rates. eg. most MP3's on the internet are encoded at 96 - 128 kBps, this is lower quality but has quite small file sizes and is good for sharing over the internet.

  • Now Double Click on the LowRate DWORD value, and set the value data to the lowest bit rate you selected earlier. ie. if you chose 96 kBps then enter 96000 in value data.

  • I find that the good choice here is 96, 128, 192, and 256 kBps.

  • As I say though, I know the Fraunhaufer supports 128, 192, and 256 kBps @ 48 kHz, it gives a good range.
