whillst I really like the sound quality of OGGs over either MP3 and WMA -even at lower bit-rates - I seem to regularly suffer from clipping problems - perhaps I am over-sensitive to the effect of clipping on the sound of music - but it is very annoying.

I rip on my PC - and playback on my Samsung player - which supports WMA, MP3 and OGG.

problem is you use mp3gain to remove clipping on MP3s - but for OGGs since no portable (or very few) support the embedded gain levels produced by something equivalent of mp3gain - there is no solution ? Is this right ?

I've tried normalising (at say 85% max) before encoding - but that doesn't seem to really work.

I don't want to go through every track manually in wav format either.

any ideas please ? I'd love to enjoy my OGGs more than I do at the moment.

thanks, Mark.
