Id like to know, whats the diffrence between the compression in MD and
mp3-players. Same with the AD-converter in MD,DAT and mp3. I read that the
Archos Jukebox had better quality than most other mp3-recorder. Has someone
Experience with it? Also: Is the something like a Sampling-Rate(16 bit) in
mp3-machines?
