WMA Standard supports 24 bit audio FWIW.  No idea if the MS encoder is particularly good at it (probably makes no difference anyway).

I have no idea what you mean by that,


I mean the decoders can output 24 bit samples, same as WMA Pro.

Which is rather silly, since the decoders themselves produce floating point samples internally, then quantize to 16 or 24 bit PCM in the output stage. Of course, that's less destructive to the signal than the actual encoding process was in the first place, so I guess there's really no point in making that distinction.

That's whacky Lvqcl.

So the issue is 9.2 vs 9.  I can encode to WMA STD 9 on an XP box just fine, but the other XP box that is all updated encodes to 9.2 and munges the file.
Oh well, I use peak vbr 2-pass w/o issue, so no worries for me.
