i think they are 'supposed' to represent a % quality.. but they are just high-to-low (or should it say low-to-lower... uh oh.. i better watch out for tos8)

Have you heard problems with a ~240Kbps VBR (Q98) wma 9.1 file to say it is low quality?

How about this new report (DBT and all) on WMA Pro quality?

It would be nice if they stated the bitrate of the HE-AAC used in the test.

Bitrate is in the pdf and is indeed 64 kbps. Even precise steps to how the clips were encoded are given in there.

Of course using the same rethoric you could say that 63% of the participants rated HE-AACv2 equal or better than WMA.
