OK, I've organized this.
It's not possible to average 32kb/s stereo with Vorbis using VBR.
Quality -2 stereo proeduces roughly 32 to 38kb/s which is too high for
I would have to use ABR, but last I tried that, it utilized too much CPU
for my 950Mhz PC, and oddcast doesn't appear to support that option
I've tried AACPlus 32kb/s mono and there is very little difference from
stereo as far as sound quality goes.
Anyway, I've set up a mono AAC+ stream at 32kb/s for. It's strange that
Winamp reports it as stereo but the selection in the the shoutcast DSP
Vorbis q -2 http://soulfm.stationplaylist.com/listen.m3u
AAC+ 32kb/s http://stream.gottabelieve.org:9000/soulfm.aac.m3u
I think the treble is much more natural with AAC.

You should do stereo and then do an aacplus stream at 32kbps along side,
can compare the two objectively.

I should have provided a link to my low bitrate vorbis stream. It's a
mostly easy listening world music format:
