I use LAME 3.96.1 because it's the latest final release. I used Ogg Vorbis for quite some time but when I bought my little MP3 USB stick I switched back to MP3, which provides me with good enough quality (as long as I can't tell the difference to the original I call it good enough wink.gif). I'd only switch to a new codec if it provided the same quality as LAME at about half the file size.

3.96.1 because its faster than 3.90.3, that's about the only reason since I don't encode too many mp3s (or any lossy formats) often.
