Split from here. This topic has been discussed to death in the threads related to the multiformat listening tests.
If you want to add something here, re-read these threads first. Only post here if you have something new to say, please

There is something else that I think would give all codecs a fairer chance. Even though using VBR whenever possible it would be helpfull trying to achieve similar filesizes.
(I remember the multiformat 128kpbs test where Musepack was a winner but at the expense of files 11,7% larger than the close second QT AAC.)

I think that Roberto selected wisely the samples used in tests:
- there are all globaly difficult (that's why average bitrate for VBR encoder is higher than the targetted value), in order to make ABX easier and accessible for most people. Hard to encode, but not total killer.

That's an interesting thought! Yes, it made the complete test easier. But it also gave a slight edge to more variable codecs (in particular MPC). Maybe, if the files would average to 128, then MPC's rating would be a tad worse with each file?

OT: Partition Magic is the source of all evil.

biggrin.gif Luckily I have more than 10 partitions on my harddisk, and the one affected wasn't the most important one (although it was the largest crying.gif smile.gif).

It was the only problem I ever had with PQMagic, and I used it quite frequently in the last years. I might look at Acronis the next time, thanks for the recommendation.
