High quality vs. compact Samantha

Hi, All, Saturday afternoon I picked up my iPod Toch to do something and i noticed that Samantha was sounding really strange and not good. I immediately went into the VoiceOver settings and noticed that there was now a compact voice button where there had not been one for the prior three days. I turned the compact voice back on and, very strangely, Samantha was sounding really good again, like she always had been. I don't know what's with that but I just thought I'd report this experience. No way will I use that high quality voice. When I try it, it's sound is grainy and underwatery. And this is supposed to be a high quality voice? Forget it, the compact is just fine here.
Hi.! I really like the new HQ voice. It sounds weird if the speech rate is too fast, but if it is on 80 or 70 it sound very good for me.
