Streaming audio @ 320kbps

Please, bring back possibility to stream audio at 320kbps. The limitation of bitrate causes a huge loss of quality, mainly with classical music (our case).

This has been limited to 192 kbps since this build: 7-4-200918 (September 18, 2020)

I've inquired about this, and am told that a new audio encoder was implemented which is expected to deliver higher quality at lower bitrates, and that this encoder tops out 192.

Okay. Leaving apart the discussion about sound quality I would like to ask one more question about this:

Why don't you just keep allowing to use 320 kbps giving the information in menu that 192 kbps is the one recommended by newtek at point of efficiency level?

Because, as I mentioned, the new encoder does not support the higher value.
