I've searched the forum for interesting information about Ogg Vorbis. I use it for Internet radio listening (the station I listen to uses aoTuv at -q2), but I've found many old (2002-2005) threads about the supposed stereo collapse vorbis has even at ~128 kbps? Does Vorbis still suffer from these issues or was this solved?

Thanks in advance for good answers.

If I could honestly differentiate between vorbis q2 and flac 8 out of 13 times I'd be waaaaaaayyyyyyyyy down the rabbit hole shouting about how golden cable tips 'vastly improve spatiality and high frequency response'. That being said, I don't bother with dbt when deciding on a codec setting to use. I just encode at increasingly higher levels until the obvious smearing/artifacts are gone and be done with it. Why bother abxing with fighter beat or castanets? Neither of those are in my music library. And abxing always ends up with me chasing my tail with not so wonderfully produced (but still great music!) albums where I discover what I *think* are artifacts which actually turn out to be part of the recording! Not that abxing isn't important, it surely is when it comes to dispelling audio myths, but it can also give new users false ideas when they get 8 out of 13 guesses 'correct'. For now I listen with my sansa clip, my sennheiser iems, and my sanity intact!
