I've been listening to my finally ripped CDs on a Sonos Play:3. They've been ripped as MP3s (VBR V2) and a few as FLAC. I'm not sure if it's the rips or the Sonos, but they seem quieter than the orginal CD. I'm playing the CDs from a separates system and and old 'ghetto blaster'.
I'm using EAC/LAME to rip to MP3. Is there any way to get the violume higher. Why would they be quiter?
