Interesting, I might take a look at this using a VM. Doe sit work in a VM? I guess it's not that easy to make it ARM compatible?

I guess it's not that easy to make it ARM compatible?It works at least in VMPlayer (would recommend) and VirtualBox (and QEMU). In any VM there might be problems with sound quality, guest OS timing is not so accurate.Currently I focus on 64bit x86 platform (I think Atom N2600 with its max TDP 3.5W is really nice for this purpose).
Does it take in any account the "composer" tag, which is essential in managing classical tracks and libraries?
How is replaygain incorporated?
Why can't you just add it as an option? Many of us use RG. Just because you personally don't like RG doesn't mean you shouldn't implement it.
First, metaflac (1.3.0) works fine with high resolution, stereo files. Second, the problem is not "high resolution", it's "high dynamic range". If you feel like there's not enough headroom, you could easily add a preamp option to reduce everything by X dB before applying Replaygain.
"ReplayGain nominally plays at -14 dB relative to full-scale leaving 14 dB of headroom for reproduction of dynamic material"...I have used "EBU Recommendation R 128" based loudness calculation (23dB headroom recommended) for my own music library.
