This has been asked before but I just want to confirm. Here's my situation.

I listen to my ipod in my car. My old alpine 9887 deck could read soundcheck information from itunes so all my songs had equal (or thereabouts) volume. All my music is stored as ALAC on the ipod. I'd like to keep it in a lossless format. I now have a pioneer p99rs, which is a much nicer deck but it seems to ignore soundcheck info.

So I'm considering taking my entire collection and converting to wav while applying replaygain album settings, and then converting back to ALAC.

Besides the obvious lossy side effects of normalizing a wav file using replaygain (some data lost due lowering of volume) is there ANY loss of quality besides the volume being lower/higher?
