Using Free Audio Converter 1.0.30 what is the best FAAC configuration 1.29.7 using bit rate per channel without Joint-Stereo?
Even with the improvements, FAAC is still probably not the best choice.
So should I use FAAC 1.28 for now?
The Core Audio encoder seems to provide the best quality at the moment.

Because in the version I used 1.0.28 with FAAC 1.28 I used 128 per channel and the songs got the final quality this way:247kbps, 265, 270 ....And with FAAC 1.29.7 when choosing which rate per channel the songs have the same qualities for example:130 per channel result = 260kbps.
You can use the FDK-AAC encoder on Linux. The quality is comparable to that of the mighty Core Audio encoder maintained by Apple.
I just did a couple of quick listening tests (60-80kbps AAC-LC) and it looks like FDK sounds better than Core Audio.
