With both HELIX and FHG finely tunable VBR mode, I believe that we should be able to start a VBR-only listening test with very limited bitrate discrepencies between all competitors (if people agree with this idea).
I believe that FhG "CBR Joint Stereo" would perform better than FHG "VBR Stereo" in the planned bitrate range.
But requiring to verify if JS@128 is superior to Stereo@128 is senseless and simply absurd.
Egor, I strongly recommend to use your "believing system" locally, but not on this board, because you simply violating TOS.

Actually, depending on the used program the possible main choices are:...- JS VBR

The problem here is that we all speculate. I do regarding iTunes, you do regarding MS and MP3... Nothing is certain unless we do some tests that show this. Unfortunately, we don't have the time and resources to conduct such pre-tests.
Test the most common software encoders feature in, if they offer VBR and don't recommend against it in the manual, test VBR because it should be better, else CBR.
edit: just curious, but what's mmjb's market share and what is it's default setting?
What is that supposed to mean?

kwanbis, did you read my whole post? 2 is simply not possible, so we have to mix 1 and 2.
