I guess my point would be that storage space / costs / constraints aren't a concern anymore. Given that, I doubt most people could tell a 160kbps or above mp3 from a AAC file. Most listening situations are less than perfect, either hardware, environment, or both. Also, mp3 is so universal. So why bother with AAC? Plus, AAC is itself confused, with the different types of it as Egg points out.

To be clear, I think winamp should support it to whatever extent is possible, that's not the issue. I just can't see why anyone would want to encode a CD or whatever to AAC instead of mp3. Anyway, I think all of that is why Egg hadn't seen any AAC comments yet.
