How to setup a listening test on linux?

I would like to do some listening tests for vorbis and opus at different bitrates on my LMDE PC (it is debian based).
Just, I don't know which software can be used to the purpose, can you help me?
I apologize if this is an already asked question, I'm totally newbie here.

I just use Foobar2000 under WINE on my Linux Mint v20.1-Cinnamon PC. then you should be able to ABX with that on Linux. I can't imagine you would have any major issues installing Foobar2000 under WINE for LMDE4.
For music I suggest (using Foobar2000)... MP3 (LAME) @ V5 (130kbps). NOTE: using on AGPTEK-U3 as of Mar 18th 2021. I use 'fatsort' (on Linux) so MP3's are listed in proper order on AGPTEK-U3.

Install wine package;

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install wine

download foobar2000
associate .exe or .msi files with /usr/bin/wine
run foobar installer, create portable installation in the HOME folder
run foobar2000 as needed from that folder.
