So, Doom9 is without a doubt the best place to talk about video compression techniques, but every film has an audio track that's just as important as the video stream. Doom9 folks know a lot about video but nowhere near quite as much about audio.

The most recommended gain/normalization technique there is using either BeSweet/Oggmachine or HeadAC3he's built-in normalization setting. I'm pretty sure this is an Azid setting and not the HA-preferred ReplayGain/WaveGain technique as it's displayed as Normalize to: 98% with an adjustable percentage setting.

Since I'm fairly certain that this is the case, my question then is: would you recommend that I stop using HeadAC3he (tool that passes Azid out (AC3->WAV) to the Vorbis encoder) and instead use Azid to get AC3->WAV, and then use the Vorbis encoder manually on the WAV to set ReplayGain?
