In the past LAME was using the Painter &Spanias formula.
But we had some recurrent problems with HF content.
We measured real ATH values, and found the older formula
to be inacurate in the higher part. So we made this new
formula and this solved most of HF problematic testcases.
The tradeoff is that in VBR mode it increases a lot the
bitrate.*/

it adjusts from something close to Painter & Spanias
on V9 up to Bouvigne's formula for V0. This way the VBR
bitrate is more balanced according to the V value.*/

In the psycho model we are working in the energy domain. Hence the values that

As noted on the LAME mailing list from years ago (MFC FIX find the reference), the
absolute threhsold of hearing values in the tables in the standard are dodgy  the
ATH in the tables do not correspond to any previously known values of the ATH.
From ISO 11172 Tables D.4.x
"A value of 0dB represents a level in the absolute threshold calculation of
96dB below the energy of a sine wave of amplitude 32760."
