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.

You can't remove clipping on MP3s either.

But if you mean that your player clips when the source hits or goes near 0db, the only solution is to destructively apply replaygain on the lossless source (wav) and only then convert to Vorbis.
