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?

What about volume leveling?

With the test procedure described by NTSL the encoder raising the volume the most would normally win such a comparison.

Not that I suspect neither WMA PRO nor AAC of boosting the volume, however software is software and IMHO the testing metholody should have taken this issue into account. At least provide an analysis of the gain of the resulting wav files.
