You'd have to ask Roch Lefebvre if a better version of that codec exists nowadays. Back then, we tried our best to win the standard, of course. For enhanced aacPlus, my guess is that the perceptual model was tweaked with computational complexity as a major constraint, but of course they wanted to win the standard just as badly! (and in the end, as can be seen it was a draw - 3GPP added both as optional standard codecs, effectively a loss for both) Cheers, Joachim -- Joachim Thiemann :: ::
