Ooops, you're right DJ Egg. It would be sweet if they'd updated the decoding of the plugin to take advantage of the newest encoder's features, but I suppose there's only so much one will do for a format has been long inactive.

Once considered the best format for high-quality lossy audio, Musepack hasn't even been recently tested against the newer LAME and Vorbis revisions for a lack of encoder development.

I've been trying Vorbis's aoTuV beta5, and its amazing how good the music can sound at the lower bitrates... at least compared to MP3 encoded at similar rates. Now Vorbis, that's a good codec with active development. Even if it's not being done by the "official" devs.
