    ReplayGain Really Necessary?

    Hi

    I've been reading about RG from different sources. There were arguments for and against. Me as a FLAC newbie, have no idea if there are any other benefits apart from normalising the files on an album which I guess will make replay of the files with lower volume compared to non ReplayGain files?

    Only reason why I am using RG is reading from your guide to good CD ripping.

    I have already ripped about 90 CDs out of 858. 30 of those 90 CDs do not have RG so I just need to know if I am ripping them the right way for perfect and great sounding FLAC files. Should I continue with RG or stop?

    I am streaming my FLAC files via Squeezebox Touch to my pre/power amp.

    It is better to have the tag even if in the short term you are not going to use it.

    Ok, thanks. I found out too the the Squeezebox Touch, by default, Volume Adjustment is turned off, so it's good.
