What do you mean by re-play again?
I might know the feature... :)

Any sort of 'gain' would be nice - most of my CDs have ripped at a low-level volume. I'll have to do them again using the computer to beef 'em up a bit. The amp. on the X10 is a feeble thing, as is the output to an external amp.
I think replay gain is coding on some CDs to balance out different volume levels in quiet passages. My MP3 player has it, but I've no idea how it works.

Replaygain works by scanning your music files and then writing metadata tags for track/album gain in relation to an 89dB target value.
The resulting id3 tags can then be read by any player that supports them and are used to alter the output gain for a track/album in order to normalise the volume.
This is a handy feature especially if you often use a playlist or random play when listening to your music, as all tracks would be played at around the same volume.

I use dbpoweramp which will write the required tags when ripping, or it can add them to existing files.

It would be great if Cocktail Audio could add support for replay gain if it is at all possible?

You mean mess up the encoding my altering the acoustics...no thank you.
Would rather stick to the original & then amplifier it with an amp or other...
Many softwares have their own method & i just don't like to alter the things other than encoding like flac & others...

I think that you are getting confused with actually encoding a track/album with some form of level compression or limiting process.
Which would irreversibly alter the audio file.
Replaygain just reads the required id3 tags and then the player will use the information to turn the volume up a bit or down a bit.
Based on how much louder or quieter the next track is.

This is exactly the same thing that you are doing with the volume buttons on the remote.

Another vote for 'replaygain'.

Please, please include it in a future firmware release.
It's a standard set of 4 tags added to mp3 and FLAC files (and other formats too). Winamp uses these to great effect to automatically adjust the volume according to the tag values (either track value or album value). Using the track value is especially useful when playing random tracks from various albums. It would be great if the X10/X30 could do this too. If calculating the tag values during ripping on the X10/X30 is not possible or practical, the ability to use existing replaygain tag values during playback of externally ripped files would be just dandy.
