  So I made a couple of runs on the same wav ("Stream of Passion -

  The bitrate values are the ones given when running ogginfo on the

  The worse quality is audible in all files but you might not spot them
in the -q 10 (and maybe -q 8) settings if you are not explicitly
listening for them.

  To really hear what I mean with worse quality compare the files in
quality setting 2. This should really be a huge difference. Or even
compare the faulty -q 2 setting with the correct -q 4 setting which have
approximately the same bitrate.
