I am curious how many "problems" vbr-mtrh has..." One problem ... is that vbr-mtrh doesn't have all the noise measurement methods vbr-old has.
 Also vbr-mtrh's noise measurement methods are technically implemented a bit differently than vbr-old's, so separate tweakings (or at least testings) must be done for both vbr-modes."
I am wondering if there are any other problems with vbr-mtrh that Dibrom has to overcome?I am also curious as to how vbr-mtrh achieves more speed...what sacrifices, if any, are made?
II. -X9 (NOISE MEASURING)[/b]Another significant change that is forthcoming is a new noise measuring algorithm, which, I believe, actually combines several older methods in different ways...
I believe it will provide both Higher quality AND a smaller filesize! I read somewhere that 15 kbps lower on average is desirable (cdrw.org)...but I am not sure if Dibrom commented on whether or not this is a reasonable expectation.
