From what I say of Nero 6 it wasnt much different. I mean obviously some new things like nero recode (will this encoding actually be any way good i wonder?) and ability to make miniDVD! But besides that its a lot the same for me, except of course, write cd is no longer under file ;-)

Nero 6 also features AAC high efficiency audio encoding. It uses the SBR technology from MP3Pro. One catch at present: If you encode a HE-AAC MP4 track, you can only record it to CD with Nero 6 or convert it back to something else using Nero 6. There are no plugins for Winamp or any other player I know of that can play HE-AAC MP4 files properly other than legacy 22kHz without SBR mode (like MP3Pro on a non-MP3Pro compliant player).

I'm not going to get Nero 6. I'm doing just fine with 5.5.

For those encoding HE-AAC (AAC+SBR), a Winamp2 plugin has just come out to play them properly at 44kHz ;-)

I just rescently purchased Nero 5.5. I sent a message to Ahead asking what (if any) their conditions and prices for upgrading would be. Haven't heard from them. Does anyone know about reduced cost or free upgrading?
