So you're saying opusenc inputfile outputfile will be as small as
possible and of as high quality as possible for human ears? So no
need to up the knobs for listening on good output devices and digital
connections (cabling)? I remember that for oggenc it was important
to select the right -q level. For opusenc it seems 96kb avg is chosen
and on mid-end speakers I didn't notice quality issues.
