I have an 8000hz stereo, 16bit wave file of 10 seconds in length. When I
use speexenc to encode this file, I get a resulting file of about 22k.
When I use the sampleenc.c file included in the manual, I get a file
that is 42k.  Changing the quality from 8 to 4 in both yields:
speexenc - 12k
sampleenc - 24k
How is speexenc compressing the audio?
