CDdex and VBR clicks

    I read somewhere (wikipedia) that VBR rate ripping to Mp3 can cause a
    clicking sound in the softer parts of the music. Is the true with the
    new ripping software? (CDex is what I am using the most now, VBR
    160-192) Yes I tried listening but I wasn't sure if it was a sound of
    the music (I listen to far out music, experimental) or maybe it was a
    VBR thing...

    any ideas?

    I should have added this:
    "Early VBR algorithms occasionally introduced audible artifacts when
    encoding monotone or minimal tones (for example audiobooks and acoustic
    music). These artifacts often mimicked a "digital chirp" during the
    quiet portions of the song or when there was only speaking. As VBR
    encoding algorithms have improved, these problems have been resolved in
    subsequent generations of the VBR standard."

    how true is this statement in your opinion?

    Who cares anyway, test rip at a high bit rate - not variable,
    and test compress further 'till you find the rate before audible
    jitter intrudes.
