WMA VBR75 vs WMA ABR128

Here are two samples (piano and string quartett). The ABR (VBR 2-pass) encoding sounds clearly less degraded than with pure VBR. On piano, pre-echo is reduced with ABR. Both have problems (it's wma), but VBR encoding sound worse to my ears.

Archive contains:
- lossless sample (optim frog)
- vbr encoding
- vbr 2pass encoding

Size is ~1.2 MB for each zip file.

Note that a big difference in size exists between the two encodings.


EDIT: sample added
