I really couldn’t say without knowing anything about the sources.

And regarding my comment about the numbers, I actually meant the units you used… (KB/10s?? MB/min?? I’ll admit I had to plug it into a calculator to get kbps lol)

If you have some samples I could throw it into a compressor queue and see what it looks like when it’s done (shouldn’t be to far off from the libs ffmpeg uses) but considering those bitrates are similar to halfway decent mp3 files ripped of cd’s iirc I would expect the quality to be somewhere between just barely tolerable and fubar.
