Recommended Ogg encoder

it sounds like Opus is being designed for speech, rather than for encoding music.  Is this correct?

No. People make it seem so because it's better than other codecs at lower bit rates, used for speech.

The correct description would be that opus is meant for communication (this is why it is a low delay codec), but communication nowadays is not just voice. What it has is a specific core that helps to give good quality for speech at very low bitrates. But that is not used at higher bitrates.

We seem to have diverged a bit from the original question, which was about Ogg Vorbis.  I'm sure to many people Ogg and Vorbis are the same thing, but that clearly isn't the case any more.

I've converted all of my music to OGG Vorbis at 256kbps and I have to say that the sound is magnificent whether I play my music through earphones on my Blackberry Z10 or through my car's Sony speakers. It is MUCH better than MP3 at lower bitrates. To me, it even sounds a little bit better than AAC (especially if many instruments are playing at once).

I had Opus before and while it's good, I don't find it to be perceptibly better than OGG Vorbis.

You'll be hard-pressed to reliably distinguish between Vorbis, Opus, and AAC at 256kbps, all other things being equal.

I use Mediamonkey it is the best encoder for OGG and it is the only encoder I have found that will keep album art intact.  If you want to use  Mediamonkey get one the V4 V5 sucks it is like it went 8 to 12 years backwards S M H.

MediaMonkey is not an encoder.
