You have to falsify the statistics a lot to get to such a definite 
conclusion. The results barely differ, there were not too many testers 
participating and for some odd reason, the Vorbis files were having an 
average 8% higher bandwidth than the files used to test WMA and iTunes 
AAC. Alone the bandwidth difference is IMHO enough to doubt the 
significance of the test results, but even the testers themselfes come 
to the conclusion that "all encoders are tied on first place, except 
Shine which of course comes out last.".
