If you are using high bitrates you are just seeing placebo
effects. There are changes in the point stereo calculations
in CVS, but point stereo is not used in the higher bitrate
If you do listening tests, always do a blind test. Your
mind _will_ play tricks on you otherwise. In fact, RC2
sounding worse than beta4 for you may very well
be just because you read on this list that is what other
people thought. There are others who percieve it just

The near future would be cool too :)
