I am unsure as to what is best setting for DSP - Replay Gain; "track"; "album"; or "track and album". I don't use iTunes so those options are not relevant to me. I am ripping to FLAC (default level) and playing back through a streamer. Can anyone help, many thanks

use "track and album". You may or may not use any of these now in your players, but future players may take advantage of these so it doesn't hurt to have the RG tag info. And keep in mind that these are just tags containing info (just like ARTIST or ALBUM) and *not* changing your bitperfect audio rip. (for example, my squeezebox players use ALBUM RG info when playing a complete album (in order to maintain the intra-album relative volume) and use TRACK RG info when playing random tracks from different albums.
