    How do I change the FLAC compression level in Ubuntu?

    I play my music/sync my devices with Banshee. I am thinking about buying a secondhand Toshiba Gigabeat F20 in order to upgrade my music collection to FLAC. Before I re-rip my music, I am conserned that I will not get the maximum quality with FLAC unless I use the least compression. How do I do that, and are there any changes(file size, etc) or advantages?

    compression affects size and time to encode

    FLAC uses lossless compression, so the compression level has nothing to do with sound quality.
