You forgot to tell us what those differences in the output are. What
are the "consequences on our analysis of the audio"?

Are you saying audio was decoded (to raw) more correctly previously
than it is now?

I believe decoding of MP3 and AAC should be pretty precise. You can try
alternative decoders (such as libfdk_aac) for comparison, but I'm
riddled what you mean.
