Chapter 15. Troubleshooting > Problems with Song Quality

15.3. Problems with Song Quality

The sound quality of your digital audio files is affected by a number of things. If you find that your MP3 files sound thin and tinny no matter what you play them on, check the bit rate you used to rip them from the original CDs (Section 3.3). Bit rates below 128 kilobits per second generally don't have CD-quality sound. If you've downloaded songs from Web sites, you're usually at the mercy of whoever encoded the songs in the first place.

15.3.1. Some Songs Skip

If the same songs always skip, the song files themselves may be damaged. Maybe a hiccup or power fluctuation while you were ripping the tune from a CD dinged up the file, or maybe you had several memory-hogging programs open and running while you were recording songs. Try deleting the song files from iTunes or MusicMatch Jukebox and then reripping and reimporting fresh copies.
