I've recently discovered my inability to reliably ABX the latest AoTuV beta against FLACs from my music library at -q2 (nominal bitrate 96 kbps). The last ~96 kbps listening test I've found was done in 2005, before Aoyumi's significant improvements to Vorbis's noise normalization, and probably before some substantial improvements to other codecs as well.

I'd be very interested to see what the landscape of modern encoders at 96 kbps is like. Specifically, it would be interesting to use something like LAME -V4 or -V5 (where LAME is widely regarded as being near-transparent) as a high anchor and see if a more modern codec at ~96 kbps can compete with it. I believe ~96 kbps is very close to perceptual transparency, at least with Vorbis.
