Currently, I'm ripping my entire CD collection and compressing into FLACs. I'm interested in making the FLACs as small as possible and have no concern whatsoever for encoding time.

To achieve this, I'm currently using -V -p -l 12 -b 4096 -m -e -r 8.
(Those who use FLAC regularly will note these settings are even stronger than -8. I tried using -r 16 which the documentation states is supported, but anything over -r 8 caused an error in my tests.)

My question is: what settings, if any, would allow for even better compression?

The metadata could of course be transferred to flake-encoded files afterwards, if you are a bit handy.

But those who are truly obsessed with compression, should maybe consider other codecs than FLAC, which was optimized for decoding speed. There is really no way to improve over FLAC without sacrificing some degree of compatibility, but if that is no issue, then ... TAK.
