What Ogg Vorbis encoder would you like to see in a listening test?, oggdropXPd 1.9.0 vs. oggenc2.85 (Either libVorbis v1.2.3 aoTuVb5.7)

I'm going to conduct a multi-format listening test very soon, and I need only one encoder per format. I'm deciding between oggdropXPd 1.9.0 vs. oggenc2.85 (Either libVorbis v1.2.3 aoTuVb5.7), and I wanted on what your thoughts are, since I don't have much experience with Ogg Vorbis. All the encoders are coming from Rarewares.org.

I vote for libvorbis 1.2.3

Because it is newer and for me it sounds better than aotuvb5.7 at ~150 kbps.

Which bitrate you have choosen for test?

Have you ever ABX'd this? Either one should usually be completely transparent at such a high bitrate. AoTuv Beta 5.7 is widely considered to be mostly transparent (except on a few killer samples) at -q3 or -q4, which correspond to nominal bitrates of 112 and 128 kbps respectively. Even -q2 (nominal bitrate 96 kbps) seldom produces severe artifacts that are noticable in casual listening. I can ABX LAME at ~128 kbps on a lot more samples than I can ABX Vorbis at ~96 kbps.
