what versions of the encoders did u use? i only see version numbers for lame.
i found this post doing a google search. are you going to consider posting this info to hydrogenaudio?
i think a lot of people will be skeptical of these results being that musepack finished close to last for high and very high bitrates. as you probably know, it is generally considered to be the best for high bitrate lossy encodes. to see lame ahead of it is a little surprising.
anyway, nice job! this looks promising. i myself can't wait for Nero AAC to definitively surpass musepack!
