After 4 Years, HydrogenAudio Opens New 128kbps Listening Test 267

kwanbis writes "After more than four years, a new MP3@128kbps listening test is finally open at! The featured encoders are: LAME 3.97, LAME 3.98.2, iTunes, Fraunhofer IIS mp3surround CL v1.5, and Helix v5.1 2005.08.09. The low anchor is l3enc 0.99a. The purpose of this test is to find out which popular MP3 VBR encoder outputs the best quality on bitrates around 128 kbps. All encoders experienced major or minor updates that should improve audio quality or encoding speed, and we have a totally new encoder on board. Note that you do not have to test all samples — it is a great help even if you test one or two. The test is scheduled to end on November 22nd, 2008."
