Hi to all, i really read all the threads and see a lot of information, are in sticky a post who tell about the best encoder for VBR is Lame 3.9.0.2, but it is arround the 24 Oct. and my question is "still it in the 1st possition"?

And i need archive my collection of CDs, i see the best archiving preset is --alt-preset standard, right? I need arround 192k aprox., what about Lame 3.92 for VBR?

The last question, what is the BEST mp3 player?, like Winamp,Qcd?, i really probe only winamp 2x and 3x ( what a sh...)(fatware,slow...)
anybody got betters players?. i have a good equipament for good listening.
Thanks for your help and information.

LAME 3.90.2 is still considered the most stable version, but the new 3.93.1 version should be bug-free and provide equal quality, but has not been tested as much as 3.90.2 has.
If you use one of these versions be sure to use --alt-preset standard as your cmd.line.
Good decoders are mpg123 (mpglib, used e.g. in lame), madplay (libmad, Winamp PlugIn available) and the Fraunhofer Decoder (used in Winamp ACM codecs and newer Winamp Versions). Be sure to use aplayer, which uses on of those decoders to get good quality.

What about the quality of X-Audio? From what I've read about it, it doesn't produce a good sound quality and therefor I still can't figure out why X-Audio is so popular...

If you want a good small player, try Martin Pesch's 1by1, available: here. It is able to use the Winamp2 plugins.
