I have read everywhere that it is better than MP3, but will i be able to notice the difference?
I encode all my files to VBR -V0 and i don't know anything about AAC, what would be the equivalent encoding settings for AAC?

Can you people really notice that theyre is a reall difference in quality? I want to test it by myself (encoding always it max quality off course) but first i want to ask here.

An example of a problem sample (specific for Nero AAC): mmasq.wav

And BTW, according to the July 2011 AAC listening test, Apple AAC and FhG AAC perform better than Nero.
