Always highest quality (like all other codecs) EZ CD aims for best audio quality

No advanced options are needed with the new codec configuration interface. MP3 encoder configuration is now similar to other encoder configurations.

But now you can't setup stereo mode (joint stereo) or setting up filters... I always was so happy to be able to set up all those things...

Joint Stereo is preferred mode at all bit rates for best audio quality. Default passbands are optimized for best audio quality. I am sure you want the highest possible audio quality by default.

Joint Stereo is definitely not my preferred encoding method for any techno or dance music where the production often has speaker play. Can I please have a link to download the previous version?

LAME MP3 encoder does a very good job of making Joint Stereo better sounding than True-Stereo via codec advances, which is why joint stereo is the LAME MP3 encoder default for all bit rates.

Now, let's consider a 256 kbit/s MP3 file:

A True Stereo file will have two channels that share the bit-rate but are independent of one another. So 256 kbit/s becomes 128 kbit/s per channel maximum, irrespective of the amount of shared information; centre(mono) sound. Information can be duplicated at the expense of detail.

A Joint Stereo file can mix (join) parts of the audio that are close to centre/mono and very similar sound/information. This allows more of the available bit-rate to represent detail both for the mono parts and the separate (stereo) parts.

So I guess that's a 'no'.
