I encoded a track with EAC (-T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" -8 %s) as per Wiki. I encoded the same track with Foobar2000 -8 (it tells me no other options).

The files seem to differ in size. Is this becuase of slight differences in the way they encode? Am I doing something wrong in EAC?

You might want to run metaflac --list on them. My guess is that it's got something to do with padding.

But regardless, lossless is lossless, yes? As long as you see nothing wrong with my EAC command line I'm happy.

Yes. metaflac --list should show you the same MD5 sum for both files.

yes, the very same. What's strange is that Foobar will report the bitrate incorrectly for one of them. there's a 1kbps difference. Thanks for the help though!

Probably padding and tagging differences.
