I've been checking out the new episodes and I really have mixed feelings about everything. Although I can stand most of the new voices, and I think that some of them are really good (I absolutely love the new Frieza), I can't really stand Vegeta's new voice.
I don't really understand how audio in or whoever chose the voice thought that a voice trying to emulate Loy's worse moments as Vegeta would work. It's high pitched and very forced, and it really doesn't fit. I'd rather have the actor just use its own voice, the way it feels so forced sounds so bad to me.
I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually, but right now I am not hearing Vegeta when I hear it. But it is really sad how there are a million Portuguese voice actors that could do a great Vegeta and this is the voice they gave him. But, well, I believe it will get better soon.
As for the rest of the voice actors that are part of the dub since the beginning of Super, it's really nice to be hearing them again, most of them are still great, and it is really a relief to still have Cristina Cavalinhos, although she doesn't have many lines. Today she will have more lines as 18 is going to appear a lot in the next couple of episodes, and she is also voicing Rozie from Universe 2 now.

Yeah I'm not liking the new dub that much either, and most of that feeling comes from the god awful Vegeta that Simon Frankel's doing. I really like Simon Frankel's work and he's a great Voice Actor but he should have used his own voice instead of trying to do a Loy impression.

As for the rest, technical errors from Audio In are still happening especially when it comes to script mistakes and the new voices while serviceable really need some ''soul'' to them because as of now they are mostly generic with one or two exceptions.

PS: Jiren is awful and getting worse each new episode, Quimbé started doing a Batman voice and it just doesn't work, oh well at least Miguel Raposo is still an amazing Goku

script mistakes
What are you talking about? I've been checking the dub from top to bottom to see if there are any mistakes, especially script mistakes and I haven't caught nothing actually note worthy and especially nothing at the levels of the mistakes the dub had on SIC. While the opinions regarding the new Cast are entirely subjective I think that on the objective side of the dub it's quality is much better than whatever it was before Biggs took control. I think the dub is just a dub now, a middle of the road normal dub, and honestly, I'll take that over something that deserves to be studied and used as a template of how not to do a dub.

Okay, so the dub ended just now.

Honestly the difference in quality in general for these last episodes is so big it's actually ridiculous BUT for some reason the post-credit scenes in the final episode weren't there and I honestly don't know why, there wasn't a single thing that wasn't dubbed here, not a single scene cut but these two scenes were? Honestly don't know if this was a Biggs thing or a Audio-In thing. I talk regularly to someone that goes to Audio-In every week and has excellent relations with everyone there so I'll ask and see what happened.

Either way, Raposo was great, new cast also pretty good, Frankel was an okay-ish Vegeta (completely inconsistent but he got pretty good on major scenes, he can scream, and he's better than Loy ever was on the series, better that Super Loy but worse than Broly Loy), Quimbé made Jiren way better and he screamed pretty well. Overall a good dub, way better in general quality than what it was before.

PS: Great little detail that they used the script from the Z dub on the Buu Saga flashback.
