    Exactly mp3128kbps would be better, though if you want a freeware to transcode to aac, your best bet is iTunes.

    There's no point in encoding from one lossy format to another. Never be a fair comparison.

    If the source is lossless or atleast 320kps (mp3), aac (mp4/m4a) will deliver more quality at 64kbps than mp3 codec (simple fact : it can compress better). Make sure to keep HEv2 below 128kps & LC for above.

    But "ogg" at 64kps encoded with aoTuV (ogg encoder) will beat them both hands-down.

    Almost all use "Nero-encoder" (except shitty iTunes) & its free. Only your settings & the source matters. Still, my personal fav is foobar with all encoders.
