while listening through my vast collection of Danzig songs, I came a across a sample that may be of use for listening tests or even encoder tuning.
It has sharp attacks (3.903. aps uses 16.1% short blocks) which are only on the right channel (75% SS stereo) and imho the stereo image is difficult to encode overall.
3.90.3 aps average bitrate for the 29.5s sample is 244k.
I can ABX the sharp attacks with medium bitrate lame encoded files pretty good, that should leave some room downward for not-so-good coders like Xing, FhG etc
So, if experienced listeners would take a few minutes to share their opinion on this beauty, I would be grateful.
