You haven't the faintest clue how this forum started.
We aren't angry, we simply know that you have no idea what you're doing, yet you insist that you do. Please, stop wasting our time. I would say your endeavors are useless, however, they will prove useful if you come away from this learning why what you're doing is the wrong way round.
@Case, Is it time to attach a picture for a stream link?
What would be cool is to add a property like "link to specified image" in External Tags where user could enter just the path to a specified image file for a radio stream which would then be displayed in the Album Art Viewer box as if it were an embedded cover image. Case, is that a possibility?
I thought the forums were for questions, discussion and exchange of ideas, I do not think they are canonical churches with rigid rules like "forget it and stick with the default settings."
It's not forbidden to ask questions. People are just pointing out to you that it is extremely unlikely that you found some secret 'magic' settings for lame that are better than the default settings. LAME is a very mature codec, that has been worked on for many many years by people much more experienced than you in psychoaccustics.
It comes across very arrogant and exposes the Dunning-Kruger-Effect if you think you can improve general applicability by tweaking some command line settings.
That's a pretty meaningless ABX test. You don't need to prove that you can't distinguish a encoded file from the source.
What you should be doing: Post an ABX where you successfully distinguish the (in your opinion) inferior Mp3 with default encoder settings and same bitrate from lossless source. Then you should do ABC/HR tests to show that you can distinguish the two Mp3s from each other and that you consistently rate the one with your snakeoil commandline settings as higher fidelity.
I apologize if someone felt embarrassed by my posts. It was not on purpose. I'm new to this forum and I do not know the procedures very well. Others have posted spectrograms and have not been admonished for it. They are only indicative, OK, they do not have scientific value. But as you can see from the posts of others, nobody knows all. I thought the forums were for questions, discussion and exchange of ideas, I do not think they are canonical churches with rigid rules like "forget it and stick with the default settings."
I'm trying to find a combination of settings in LAME to get a .mp3 as transparent as possible, regardless of size. For storage on android. Maybe it's silly what I do, I do not know, but it's worth trying. I'll complete the analysis with the evidence suggested by Deathcrow, which I thank, and let you draw the conclusions. Thanks for understanding and patience.

But did you keep the log files? They make it easier for CUETools to find it. Anyway: if you have a directory for each album (each "physical disc" in case of 2CD/3CD/nCD albums), then install CUETools; then either choose drag+drop and give it all the directories, or point it at the parent folder. I suggest you first make a test run without without setting it to write tags. Then, if there are many that are found in AccurateRip, you can let it write AccuraterRip tags, use foobar2000 to find those which are OK and move them out of the way, and then you see which ones are "damaged" ... if you like to call them that.
