Recommended Posts

hi

may i ask you 2 questions?

 

1) what program do you use to encode music? i use mostly flac or mp3 , recenty i tried opus and it's amazing

i'm a new apple user , and i haven't a great encoder and ripper , mostly i use an old windows laptop (eac or foobar + lame v3 (it's brand new release ) or flac

 

2)and may i ask you about what dvd burner could i buy? i 'm looking for accurate audio rip and without copy protection in the firmware , in short able to rip every cd

in my nation , I can have only 1 copy of my original cd or dvd or blue raw

i buy cd mostly and some time vinyl

about the dvd ,it could be even internal device used for desktop , i have used in the past an old plextor (for desktop ) "now dear" with an adaptor seeing i had a laptop

 

thanks

best regards

After ripping my CD collection first to WMA, then to Ogg, then to MP3, I figured out that lossless was the only way to go.  FLAC/ALAC; it doesn't matter.  Rip once and convert later to any format you might need.  Be sure to have an off-site backup plan.

 

On Windows, EAC > FLAC is fine.  dBPowerAmp is another popular ripper.  On Mac, set iTunes to rip to "Apple Lossless" format or many people like XLD.

 

Old Plextor drives were good performers.

I'm a Windows 8.1 user, so I use FLAC, and like you I just use the drive in my old laptop. Lossless is definitely best, and be sure to back up regularly, as it says above.
