This is extremely unlikely - if you're using the same settings with darkice, 
it should sound the same (unless darkice is ignoring some of your settings), 
they both use precisely the same encoding library.

As a general note - setting maximum bitrate to the same as nominal is not a 
particularly good idea, it'll seriously hurt quality to do so.
