SoX settings in XLD, anyone ??

So my newest version of XLD now offers these SoX settings.. I've read up a bit but it's kind of over my head. When I rip to Aiff I now have these choices.. I understand that HQ is High Quality, and that VHQ is Very High Quality.. can anyone explain it a bit more and or make a recommendation on whats the best setting? Here's the choices I have:

 

SoX MQ

SoX HQ

SoX VHQ Minimum Phase

SoX VHQ Linear Phase

SoX VHQ Intermediate Phase

The SOX option is greyed out on my MBP???

 

Me too, until I played around with XLD, with Sample Rate and Bit Depth selections "Same as Original" SoX is greyed out, however if you change one to a specified sample rate and/or bit depth SoX becomes black and its options selectable. I would guess SoX are options for converting from one sample rate / bit depth to different one and not for changing from one file type to another.

I have dementia. I save all my posts in a text file I call Forums.  I do a search in that file to find out what I said or did in the past.

 

I still love music.

I use XLD (apart from ripping) to convert 24 bit files to 16bit.. from my reading of the Faq I'm using the HQ setting.. I guess I could also use the VHQ Linear?

 

From the Faq:

 

Resampling is a series of compromises so there's no one true answer for all situations, but the following rules of thumb should cover most people's needs for 99% of the time:

 

Phase setting: if resampling to < 40k, use intermediate phase (-I), otherwise use linear phase (-L, or don't specify; linear phase is the default).

 

Quality setting: if resampling (or changing speed, as it amounts to the same thing) at/to > 16 bit depth (i.e. most commonly 24-bit), use VHQ (-v), otherwise, use HQ (-h, or don't specify).
