Yup, CDex served me well. Ripped 500+ albums with it to MP3, but now I'm re-ripping my albums in .aac

i still find mp3 the best overall quality but i now have winamp pro with aac and mp3 too so can use either, i also have been using cdex for years using qmode0 in lame and vbr 192-224 and wihtout fail the audio clarity is superb each time, lame version 3.93 btw, rips a 4 min track in about 25 seconds at 12x realtime

I used to use CDex @ 192. I then ripped a few albums at 320 and was very impressed with the quality.

I then encoded the same albums using the Musepak encoder in EAC with a variable bit-rate which peaks about 215.

They sound great and are so much smaller than a 320 mp3 :D

you know....honestly i disagree about EAC being the best ripping program....in fact i think it is very overrated and ever since i got into the scene i have had problems with the program....and for two years i have been ripping cd's with a much better program (at least in my eyes)...

while its not free-ware....i think its a hell of a lot better...and it doesnt have a WIN-DOS pop up....heh

-V 1 -b 128 -m j -h -q 1

so is that the best commandline to use? thats the one they gave on the site. I used to use CBR but VBR is so much better but then again the files are alot larger. Just wondering I guess.

It produces excellent quality yet with a predictible filesize :yes:

Is it me, or is this guide out of date. I just installed EAC and I couldn't find half the options.

Hi..all! thanks to err... username mountaineer dude 4 the guide, really appreciated by me, a newbie. Great stuff.

I've a question if ya dont mind - I'm encoding a couple of songs at various bit rates lame and ogg to find which is basically the lowest file size that i cant tell from the original.

When trying a few ogg encodings to compare to lame, should I use the variable bitrate xxx kbps options or the quality x options? Whats the difference? Also when encoding to mp3 should i use the vbr xxx kbps or the xxx kbps? and whats that alt- preset standard thingymigib?

am very confused :(

hope someone can help!

Why is it that everyone always goes for the most complicated solution?
