While I realize you are not responsible for the FLAC encoder settings, are you able to provide any information on them? I am aghast to even the Basic flac encoder configuration settings. A google search for Joint Stereo vs Adaptive Joint Stereo provided little assistance. The presets 0 through 8 are only labeled by speed, however, what I am looking to optimize is quality. Anything I can do with the Format and Expert tabs to optimize quality?
How can one use the fre:ac and flac encoder settings to optimize sound quality regardless of speed or file size?
