64kbps is a low bitrate.


(And I will not even ask how can one do an ABX test in Audacity...)

2304p,

Have You done any resampling in the middle of or after the conversion?. There is a symptom of noise shaping in your celt decoded file.
Also not sure if 0.11.2 will be decodable in future. It will be more safe to wait for final specs of Opus.

0.11.2 works more optimally at  48 kHz.
One should expect acceptable quality at 64 kbps but transparency can be achieved at higher bitrates.
