Why not turn the "which code do you use" thread into a poll covering a range of formats? Who on the board uses: a.) MPC b.) AAC c.) MP3 (Lame) d.) MP3 (FHG) e.) OGG f.) VQF g.) WMA for archiving Most of your music is encoded in: a.) MPC b.) AAC c.) MP3 (Lame) d.) MP3 (FHG) e.) OGG f.) VQF g.) WMA You reckon the best encoder for everyday use is: a.) MPC b.) AAC c.) MP3 (Lame) d.) MP3 (FHG) e.) OGG f.) VQF g.) WMA or something like that?

Hey!!! I'm glad to see this time around some people are voting for AAC! smile.gif  Last time I saw a poll like this it was in the gutters with VQF & WMA.

Personally I see AAC as soon to be the best all rounder.  Equal quality to MPC at the highest end, the best at 100-150kbs, and not too far behind ogg atm at the low end.  With AAC+SBR it will hopefully rival OGG at the low end, being the best or close 2nd in all three areas tongue.gif

I guess you can say "Equal quality to MPC at the highest end", yeah, but it's simply false. MPC is better at the "highest end". But you can say it's subjective. So, yeah whatever smile.gif..

OK, to prove it's not just a matter of opinion, AAC has ~5ms pre-echo (according to Psytel's site, which now is inactive) and MPC has ~2ms pre-echo. "Just as good quality" BUT better pre-echo handling = "BETTER quality".
