Sorry if this isnt the correct forum for this question but I thought this is where I'd get the quickest answer.

When I encode my audio I usually do 224kbps Stereo, now I notice kwags template use Dual Channel.

If you encode both Stereo and Dual Channel at 224kbps which will sound best and why?

TIA

If you want to retain "Dolby Surround" information, encode using Dual-Channel. It's better than Stereo.

Will I get the same file size using stereo or Dualchannel? What about j-stereo?

You'll get the same file size. Don't use joint-stereo! You'll loose surround sound information.

I'll really said that it's better with dual channel... same space but you will notify the difference. If you hear the movies throught the TV, there will not be differece...

And if your amp has dobly prologic II.... who cares about Dobly Digital

And I'm with you 100% I do ALL my KVCD's with Dolby Surround 2, and it's a blast on our RCA Dolby Prologic II receiver
I also suggest anyone with a surround sound system, to go to Radio Shack, and get a Sound Pressure Level Meter (SPL), and follow a procedure like this one: http://www.hebbe.com/ht/audiocalibration.html

You'll get the best possible audio calibration.
Note: Get the analog meter. Not the digital.
Ignore the tripod recommendations. Just use a fixed spot
