I'm an OGG newbie...

Recently the 'MP3 to All Converter' was offered on this list, so I tried it.

I tested converting a few of my 160kbps MP3 files to OGG, and was 
surprised at the sound quality.  Then I noticed the much smaller OGG 
file size and checked the converter bit rate-- it was set to 80kbps!

Is Vorbis really that good that it can make a converted 160kbps MP3 
sound as good at 80kbps?  Or am I just hearing impaired?

Ciao for now,
