Instead of adding a low-frequency speaker for every satellite speaker, it is absolutely sufficient to purchase a single subwoofer. The reason for this is that the human hearing is unable to discern the direction of low-frequency signal components.

When people take music on the go, they typically compressed tracks popular format such as MP3 or AAC. When you download music, most likely you will download it in a compressed format. However, even though the song you have downloaded has already been compressed, it usually makes sense to compress it further. That is if you don’t have enough space on your cell phone then you might want to compress each track that you have to specific bit rate.

The compression format is very important when it comes to audio quality. When choosing AAC over MP3, you can oftentimes safe have a memory. In other words, you can store twice the amount of songs on your cell phone or other portable device when using this type of compression.
