When I A/B'ed them with my FiiO X3 with Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, I didn't hear a difference between the same CD ripped to FLAC 1.3.1 by EAC and dBpoweramp. At least for me, the issue has been laid to rest as I hear no difference. Both were verified accurate and as far as I have read, this is exactly the result I should come up with.
Yeah...I tried to bury this thread long ago. hehe
