Back in the day when I ripped all my CDs to MP3s, I always used to rip in VBR 192. This seemed like a zero SQ cost way to save storage space. Currently most of my music is 44/16 FLAC and I don't download HR audio files for the same reason (well also cost). All my music is on my laptop where still storage space is an issue (512 GB HDD). Is there a variable bitrate high resolution format similar to for MP3 which fluctuates between say 88/24 and 44/16 as per the demands of the music? Is this even theoretically possible? Disclaimer: I'm not sure if this is the correct sub-forum.
