Who cares about the compression level, it's for sure -5 anyway and between -5 and -8 only few MB will change. Decompression speed is a little faster as well for -5. If you're really that guy, you can encode it again later (lossless remember?).

edit:
Here you go, it's -8. From here: [removed]

ok thanks

i've do some try

king crimson - ITCOTCK

[removed] to flac using libflac.dll take from flac-1.2.1-devel-win.zip =  934.392.015 byte

[removed] to flac using libflac.dll take from flac-1.2.1-devel-win.zip and re-encode with flac1.3pre2 frontend level8 =  934.396.823 byte

[removed] to wav + encode with flac1.3pre2 frontend level8 =  934.430.923 byte

the smallest encode is libflac.dll 1.2.1

You are talking about a few kilobytes... The version number of flac1.3pre2 alone increases the file size by a few bytes.
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

There's 0.04% difference between different methods of encoding - in other words no meaningful difference at all.

Most likely the audio content is identical and the size difference is due to tags.

I direct everyone to read #9 of the Terms of Service, which clearly states that descriptions of methods to bypass copy-protection/DRM, or of programs that are capable of doing so, are not permitted on Hydrogenaudio. This is serious: being misconstrued as promoting such things could have serious implications for the site.
