Is FhG AAC encoder bundled with Winamp 5.63 a decent one, or there are better free alternative?.This encoder can achieve a maximum bitrate of 448 kbps on CBR mode and LC profile, but I wonder if it's more efficient than other encoders, as I'm considering switching fro MP3 insane preset encodec with LAME 3.99.5 and re-ripping lossless source into AAC-LC (.m4a) files.Thanks in advance.

BTW the fhg encoder in win amp doesn't do true CBR. Even if you set it that way it still runs in vbr just more constrained around the target bitrate set. I actually like the easy settings in the real vbr mode. At q3~96 I was just barely able to abx so I bumped up to 4. Set and forget love win amp.
