256Kbps being worked on? Seriously? This is 2018 and 320Kbps has been available on other platforms for over a decade. 320Kbps should be a minimum with lossless formats being worked on. :D

HE-AAC is horrible as any bitrate higher than 64 kbps there is no difference.  Switch to LC-AAC 256kbps or higher.

They have answered their streaming quality in there AMA.

What's your current audio quality and what audio quality are you going to give in the long run?
Right now if you stream at Normal quality, you are getting 128kbps AAC as your bitrate. For premium subscribers, we offer High quality which is 256kbps AAC. If you have flaky network connectivity or want to save data, you can switch to low quality which is 48kbps HE-AAC. 256kbps AAC is equivalent in audio quality to the 320kbps CBR mp3 that we had for GPM, but it uses less data.
