    FTA: basically, they selected 112kbps and said it had no discernable difference from the reference to them, then didn’t bother testing anything else on their listeners.

    I prefer my music uncompressed so that I know I’ve got as good as I can get, but I don’t think I’ve ever compressed under 128, and most of the time I’m using 192 or 256. I think most encoders are in this range, so I’m not sure if they’re testing what most people are listening to.
