    Recently while using my mp3 player i came to know that it is capable of playing asf formats also. Since I wanted to know the size vs mp3, I encoded all the mp3 files in my player to asf format using nero 7. I was surprised that quality(as far as my ear could make out) the quality was the same but the size of the asf files were very small 40% to 50% less. Can somebody enlighten me on both these formats?
