AAC256 Kbit? was created by jonny@aalgaard.org
Hi, Do you have any plans to increase the quality of the aac encoder? For example, to aac 256 Kbit? If, yes - Then your decoder could be used for streaming audio to DAB MUX/transmitters.

Mux dabs are powered by data other than music. I suggest you take a look here (only if your internet connection is quite reliable) www.barix.com. As far as the aac 256kbs is concerned, there is not much difference with a simple mp3 stream at 320kbs already active on mb.

Be careful not to confuse aac+ with aac.
The aac + format, unlike aac, after the 96k bitrate does not introduce an audio enhancement. Aac+ is specially designed to work with low bitrates and the bitrate approaches 128k, making it totally useless to use it at a higher bitrate.
You're talking about AAC, it's a different format, which is not normally used in audio streaming. MBStudio encoding in AAC+ and not in AAC.

I could have been more precise when I started this topic, regarding the AAC format and DAB format. It`s aac+ and DAB+ I am talking about. I am still wondering if you (MBRadio) have got any plans for including aac+ encoder with higher quality than 128Kbit? The standard (that is seams to be) in Norway are at least aac+ 192Kbit for streming to MUX server. There are of course other ways to deliver audio to DAB mux as for example Limewire, WheatNet etc. (AOIP), but using MBRecaster with all the good functions as e-mail alerts, alerts for missing soundcard input, audio logging, streaming to web radio at the same time, and the option for audio processing using stereoTool are really cost effective. That’s why I am asking this question, and I am really hoping that aac+ 256 would be implemented soon, as we need higher quality than aac+128Kbit.
One of my customers are planning to install about 15-20 DAB+ transmitters this year, and the amount of radio stations connected to these transmitters could be enormous.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards
Jonny
