A quick call to the echo test service shows that voice quality hasn't improved to 'acceptable' yet for me. Is anyone getting voice quality equivalent to iChat AV yet (using the Mac client)?

I usually can't complain about the voice quality, but can't compare to iChat AV (haven't used iChat for a while).
