But yes, AAC is VBR by design and can compensate better for changes in the source material.

There are always differences between encoders.
To find out which one is better one has to test them. The problem at 320kbps is that they'll all produce perfect results most of the time so you'd have to test tons of samples to see which one fails less often (and/or less hard when it fails).
Also, Winamp 5.30 comes with a new AAC encoder version that naturally hasn't been tested (outside of Coding Technologies) yet so there's no way of saying how good it is.
I'll still using nero...
never had problems with that.
