Is there any discernible difference in quality between QAAC 2.50 and QAAC 2.64?
Hi, I was just wondering if there was any perceivable difference in sound quality between these two versions of QAAC because I would rather use 2.50 to be able to see the average bitrate on my iPod as I use a an outdated version of an app called TuneShell which is unable to display the correct bitrate of 2.64 encoded audio files. Thanks.  8)

Quick answer...  Make a copy of the same track using both versions.  Listen to the resulting files and compare.  You can use the foobar ABX comparator or just switch back and forth a few times in your own media player. 

If you can't tell the difference between the two tracks, does it really matter what anyone else says?
