My experience has been similar to yours. After trying several other
codecs a while back I settled on LAME and all the encoding software I use,
uses LAME. I've always used either JS or mono, and I've also discovered
the excellent quality/size abilities of VBR.

I can think of a few cases where VBR can be (and has been) problematic,
but haven't encountered any where JS was.
