[Speex-dev] pre-processor's residual echo suppression and AEC order

The echo canceller (AEC) should be run first on the recorded signal. 
Only do denoise and AGC and others after AEC - otherwise whatever you 
did (e.g. denoise, AGC, etc.) will only confuse the AEC.

Look under http://ns.surfnonstop.com/~bandit/speex/echocard1/ example 6 
to have an idea about what quality to expect.
