It all depends on the complexity of the music -- but if you want CD-like quality you should stick with an average bit rate of around 192Kbps (preferably VBR, i.e. Variable Bit Rate); 128Kbps is considered to be Radio Quality...

Nowadays you get a lot of MP3 files encoded to CBR 320Kbps, hence the need for something like this -- it makes more manageable files, without loss of sound quality.

Midas you are correct however I burned the same CD at 128 and 192 and could not hear any difference-I have a 2 CD drive player on my home system and could not tell which was which.

A derivative, newer (3.7) version of this software, still being developed and supported, is available from PortableApps via this link: http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/wxmp3gain-portable

The previous version has been withdrawn from their database on grounds of non-portability; the download link given leads to the Sourceforge page for this withdrawn (and out-of-date) version.
