What Bitrate for CDs

When I create audio CDs primarily for the cat I usually use 128 bitrate. This seems to be fine with the Shaker 500 as I don't notice any change in quality when using a higher bitrate. Can you audio experts let me know if this is OK or if a higher bitrate has advantages.

The higher the bitrate the more clarity you will have, especially at high volume levels, it compresses the format less so there is more accurate data, I usually use 320, but depending on the source, sometimes I can't hear a difference and sometimes there is a huge difference.

I agree... but with the factory shaker system, you wont notice a difference. A well installed high end system will detect the loss of high and low extreme frequencies due to compression but with a factory system you will be fine with 128.

He is lucky that his Shaker HU even plays MP3 CDs. I was on unit #3 under warranty, and now my Skipper 500 is taking up closet space! Not only did it suck at playing MP3 CDs, it also sucked at playing normal, store purchased CDs!

Maybe I will buy a 2016 Mustang GT, maybe not...
