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)

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

I found it interesting that at the very bottom of the pdf report, they write "NSTL does not guarantee the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the services provided to Microsoft or the data included herein." I know that disclaimers are common, but in this case it seems ironic especially for a company that on the same page claims "NSTL is the leading independent information technology testing organization for the computer industry, dedicated to providing high quality services and test tools to hardware developers, software publishers, government agencies and corporations."

Also for such an large testing group I think they should have included more types of music such as classical and jazz. It's nearly all rock/pop oriented.
