AAC - General / Re: FDK-AAC quality?
Last post by damian101 -
The FDK AAC encoder uses some aggressive denoising, even at quality 5, which means it's technically never transparent, depending on the source.

Listening Tests / Re: A Session In The Abyss: xHE-AAC vs OPUS at 12, 24 and 32 kbps (voice & music)

More proof that mp3 is a dead format.

Not necessarily dead...
Most audio podcasts are still distributed as mp3s and, say, what the TWiT network uses, I believe mono 64 kbps mp3 is perfectly acceptable to my ears for voice.

Sure, there probably are better options for quality in the range below ~128 kbps or so but it's certainly not "dead" as there are still many mp3s being made and they still can be played and probably will be able to for the forseeable future.
