I'm trying to locate the problem. At times the music will stop or do this "skipping" thing. Is this a wireless issue or ???

Another issue I have is that the volume can vary a lot. I have the replay gain set at "smart gain" but still see some very significant differences between cuts. If I adjust in I-tunes will SB follow?

Thanks!

Mac Mini 10.5.5; S.Center version 7.2; SB v3; about 8000 songs

If you haven't set something in iTunes then the files have no gain data in them and smart gain won't do anything. Since I don't use iTunes I don't know how to get it to write gain data, but presumably once you get it to do that, a "clear and rescan" in SC should pick it up.
