Also subjective, and I don't know what they're doing differently, but I have an easier time with level adjustments with Xipar (the automatic level setting for rxnoise seems to work a bit better), and at least on my radios, audio "sounds" better, better being kind of relative, yes, I understand that.

I guess it depends on if you are using the audio w-i-d-e-n-i-n-g filter 
rules.  If you are - then they are not relative, but real improvements 
in audio quality.
In zipper, the following apply:


x can be 0, 1 or 2.

Recording and Streaming - sure it does.  We record everything and it is 
streamed on Radio Reference.
Contact Brian Burton - KB3ORS for details on this.

You have to put in the following in rpt.conf then you can set it however

Not sure - I personally don't do Echolink, but it worked the last time 
someone else did a new install and connected to WAN.

That's why there are several distros.

IMHO there are two BIG disadvantages currently with XIPAR - No 
WebTransceiver and no AllMon.   So, I run two servers with ACID - all
