The Smooth Jazz station is very good, I was looking for exactly such music stations. Where did you find it?
Thanks for those hints Dynamic. I was using your option 1, but option 2 looks more family-safe. So is vlevel, but I don't always want that.EDIT: I think I can hear the effect of the EBU R128 Compressor kicking in sometimes. Also, it delays the start of playback for radio stations (presumably it is buffering several seconds, which the radio stream delivers in something like real time).

Since my media files are already replay gained, I find this plug-in useful for loading the EBU R128 Compressor and applying replay gain on the fly selectively for radio streams so that all radio streams and media library tracks are of similar sound level.The EBU R128 Compressor automatically matches to the ReplayGain standard 89 dB using the standard R-128 algorithm and a reasonable look-ahead. I use a titleformat script of $if($strstr(%path%,'://'),Radio,). The Radio chain contains the EBU R128 Compressor. See also http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....=0&p=823073
