Oh, I think I may have misunderstood you. When in an earlier post you said:-

"AAC is not limited to -strict experimental because of any quality 
issue. My experience has shown that AAC produced a much better quality 
audio than libfaac. Even audiocoding.com states that currently AAC is 
much better than libfaac!"

your reference to the "-strict experimental" flag of ffmpeg led me to 
believe you were referring to its internal version of aac and claiming 
that audiocoding.com were stating that *it* was better than theirs, not 

"FAAC is not up to par with the currently *best* AAC encoders available"

In the interests of avoiding confusion, could you perhaps clarify which 
AAC encoder you consider better than FAAC since the above quote is non

I claim no ownership, but I am grateful whenever someone takes the time 
to try and respond to my query, which is often down to my own lack of 
understanding, and which leads to the sorts of questions that those with 
a much greater knowledge of the system than me must at times consider to 
show a feeble grasp of its intricacies, and even if their answers miss 
my point, they usually spark enough of an idea to let me work my way to 
a solution which makes belittling them seem churlish.
