    Actually,i can 't recommend only one replacement for the mp3 format...
    there are various,like FLAC,Musepack,WavPack etc.

    Here's a nice link with tests/comparisons,although (seriously) dated:

    Also try googling for the "Hydrogenaudio" forum,
    it has a lot of tutorials and tests regarding the various audio formats...
    i'm pretty sure you 'll find there whatever you need...

    You could change the mp3`s into ogg files, I believe they are compressed more or just drop the bit rate down on the mp3`s that you have now.

    You might like to experiment by converting to WMA files. These sound much better than mp3 at higher compression and lower bit rates etc. I've tried it myself and it does make a difference.

    I think Ogg is way better than anything else. It's free for developers, it sounds great and the compression is outstanding. I think WMP (Windows Media Player) is the only player that does not support this audio format. Their loss really.
