I have always used LAME to encode my 320 kbps MP3s, but I know there are other encoders out there that encode 320s that peak at 22khz. Does this make for an increase in quality or audible difference? I have always thought LAME to be the best option, but I have heard from different people that 320s that peak at 22khz sound better on a large party/concert sound system.

also, what are some of the other lossy encoders out there besides LAME?

You cannot hear such high frequency so no it doesn't matter.

Also transparency isn't subjective and better equipment can make artifacts easier or harder to hear, not just easier like you're assuming.

I'm gonna go ahead and assume you're wrong, just because its you who said it.

I never made this assumption. Feel free to reread my previous post until you fully understand it.

This behavior is unacceptable.
