Is there a generally accepted standard dB level for normalization of music files? In the end, its most important for everything to be mastered to equal levels, but I''m unclear on the normal, no pun intended, dB level.

It''s supposed to be about -16dB but most CD music is louder and generally has a lot of clipping (compressed clipping of course). Download an mp3 or rip a CD track and take a look if you want peak levels.
