Hello all,

I've done some searches but I haven't been able to find this answer explicitly - and I was hoping that the knowledgeable people here could help.
When I first started to digitize my collection, I did flac images with cue sheets because my squeezebox supported it.

There was a version during the 7.x switch that it became flaky so I completed the activity by ripping to individual tracks.

I was building a new DIY NAS and I noticed that with 7.5.4 the splitting wouldn't work unless I used Windows. Which is fine.

I wanted to split the images into individual tracks and I know that Medieval Cue Splitter doesn't maintain file quality integrity.

Perusing the forums, I see that people recommend foobar2000 or CueTools - my question is, but splitting files, is the quality preserved, or should I just rip all 70 discs to individual tracks?

In this accurip log that was generated after splitting the Doors album using CUEtools why is the audio offsetted by so many different values? -1268,-373,-309,-200,928,962? And of these which offset value did CUEtools use for creating my tracks.
CUE tools even generated a 426ms "00. (HTOA).flac" file HIdden track . Is it necessary to preserve this track along with the others or simply delete this. It contains no audio.

With 'codebox' instead of 'code', you'll get more help dry.gif

(They are many because there are many different pressings with different offsets.)
