What is a Bitrate and how does it affect customers looking to hire a DJ? In today's modern world of DJ's you would think that one could simply download a song and play it which of course you could but one thing that must be considered is the bitrate of the song.
Wikepedia describes a bitrate as:
One byte per second (1 B/s) corresponds to 8 bit/s.
Now without getting to technical most songs are downloaded to a cloud player these days and you stream them from there at varying bitrates. 128 is thought to be good for the casual listener and will work fine for most applications so when you buy a song and down load it or rip it from a cd the computer many times saves the song at this rate since it is considered a quality rate and takes a minimum amount of hard drive space.
Here is the catch though - if you are a DJ like me and are amplifying this sound through monster speakers and loud levels there is a notable difference between 128 and 256.
At The Wedding DJ and SC party DJ we always download the highest bitrate available and save it to the hard drive rather than depending on the internet to stream. We are commited to giving you the best possible sound since you are the best customers in the world.
