Sure.

NFL 003 - Tom Hedden - Cinema Score (1996)(V0)

Trust me when I tell you that V0 kept more of the music intact than 320 did,  I can show proof if you want it.

...And in FLAC for the rest of us...

If possible I would like to know why, thanks

The 320 had a hard cutoff at 20kHz, with a totally empty spectrum above it, it threw away completely all frequency information above this point.  The V0 kept some of this this information, due to the use of a bit-reservoir.  It saved bits on partially silent pieces of the music, so it didn't need to throw away that last 2 kHz of bits.

Honestly, you shouldn't be downloading MP3 in the first place.  FLAC is archival grade quality.  If you want lossy music, keep the FLAC and encode it to OPUS for your portable use, it is a FAR better format than MP3 is.

Thanks. I will try that OPUS codec, I found it on the Foobar2000 converter setup... VBR @512kbps?

Btw, wouldn't you know how the FLAC codec works? I mean I never understood how it can compress the file without losing information.

I'm sure FLAC is explained elsewhere.

Opus 1.2 (no versions below this one) can compress to 80kbps and remain transparent to the FLAC.  I'm not kidding.  80kbps is all you need and it sounds identical to the FLAC it came from.
