Not really an option there. The iRiver only has a headphone out. The 
cable splits into rca right and left, which plugs into the CD-in on my 
amp. But,  previous to buying the iRiver, my setup was spdif-out from my 
laptop using the same cable into CD-in. No apparent loss of volume 
there. My guess is that the iRiver was designed for headphones only, not 
as an audio source for an amp. So the solution is to beef the gains on 
the files.

While I'd love to use open source vorbis, it's clear that the iRiver 
doesn't support replaygain tags. Or AAC. In other words I'm *settling* 
for mp3...
