How can I be sure that Winamp rips perfect FLACs?

Hey,

So, as the title said, I'd like to be sure that my flac-files are perfect copies of the originals from the original cd. How can I verify them during or after the encoding process? Also, I read quite a few threads of Winamp having some problems with flacs in the past, have they been fixed nowadays?

Winamp's flac encoder (enc_flac.dll) uses the official & latest libFLAC.

Prior to v5.54 a few years ago, we used flake instead (so maybe that's the potential issues you'd heard about in the past?)

I'm not sure how you'd go about verifying the files though....

The best way to test your FLAC copies of albums to originals is using CUETools.

Thing is, I ripped with Winamp so I don't have cue images of the CDs but instead I have .flac files. How can I test plain .flac files against CD?

Hmm, I think I should reword my question. How can I add -v (verify) flag to Winamp's FLAC encoder command line or does it use it already?
