The Fraunhofer encoder is pretty good.  I think it'd be more widely
used if it wasn't so tightly restricted.  I've been really happy with
LAME as a substitute, so much so that I've gone back and re-encoded
some stuff that I had done before with the Blade encoder.  There was
a noticable difference.

There's a lot of echo in the LH track, and the cymbals are pretty
prominent in the mix, which is the first thing to suffer in the compression.
As I mentioned, I had to listen hard for the digital artifacts, and I
didn't think they were out of line for a compressed file.

Cliff, what are you using to play the MP3s?
