This file is encoded in a slightly different way, using Variable Bit Rate at highest quality setting on the LAME encoder ( -V0 ).
 
The following is the foobar log for comparing this high quality MP3 versus the original WAV source file ( 44.1/16).
Like the previous ones, the algorithm is excellent. But it's not transparent.
This is a planned set of 12 rounds.
