hey guys, I was comparing the results of files extracted with EAC vs. CDex earlier, and I noticed that while the process using EAC took much longer, the end bitrates of almost every track were 8kbps less than the exact same tracks extracted with CDex. for instance-

01 - Nothing Is Sound.flac
using EAC, bitrate = 1065kbps
using CDex, bitrate = 1073kbps
02 - Stars.flac
using EAC, bitrate = 1062kbps
using CDex, bitrate = 1071kbps

and so on...

what I can't figure out is why there is that big of a difference between the bitrates when I thought I was using the exact same compression setting with both programs... if someone could explain the difference or suggest a new parameter string for me to use with CDex to achieve the same bitrate results as EAC, I'd appreciate it (only because using EAC takes much more time than I have to work with).

if it helps, here are my parameter strings-
-T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%g" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%n" -T "genre=%m" -8 %s

-8 -V -A tukey(0,5) -o %2 -T "artist=%a" -T "title=%t" -T "album=%b" -T "date=%y" -T "tracknumber=%tn" -T "genre=%g" -

thanks in advance for the help!

Archive- FLAC (-v 8)
Portable- QuickTime AAC (True VBR/-q 77)
