If you have access to a Windows box, Winamp v5.1 can rip CD's to AAC+. 
I can't imagine why you would want to do that normally, but it would be 
useful for comparisons.

I wasn't really thinking about 32kb/s modes as I find them poor anyway,
but I haven't heard much at the lowest rate to make a comparison as I
don't have the decoder to playback that variant of AAC.  Also note that
while q-2 is a new mode that is added, the tunings also improve the
higher modes.
