Does MAD really sound different from the default Winamp mp3 decoder? Take the MAD Challenge and prove it.

Who cares? This is stupid. It's all subjective, use what you like. :P

It's both subjective and objective. Choosing what you like is the subjective part. The objective part is trying to find out whether somebody actually hears a real difference or merely thinks he hears a difference.

As for who cares, obviously I do, but only for curiosity's sake. I can't hear a difference, so it doesn't matter to me which decoder I use. Stupid? Maybe, if you think that I'm wasting my time. But then doing any number of other entertaining things can also be classified as stupid.
