Is it true that classical music lose more details after encoded with lame or other encoder like mppenc?

For twlkwind > The only flaw I found to --alt-preset were :
· sharp and plain harpsichord recordings
· strong attacks (the 'classic' pre-echo problem)

Musepack is more flexible on natural instruments : between piano and harpsichord, there is a big difference in bitrate. The same Goldberg variations are going with --extreme from 185 kb/s (piano) to 250 kb/s (hapsichord) : +30/35 % ! VBR behavior in Mp3 is totally different, and bitrate never explode (I rarely reached 200 kb/s with --aps).

And don't forget anything else : gap between tracks. Mp3 is not gapless. Mp3cue doesn't work very well with lame VBR ; crossfading are not perfect. It's a real pain when listening to an opera, an orchestral suite, a piano sonata, an oratorio, etc... Classical needs gapless playback.
