Hi all,

Like the subject says, i would like to know what the best cd ripper to aiff for a pc is. Is there an aiff equivalent of eac? I am running a pc now but will move to a mac shortly, i would like to start ripping now.

 

Thanks in advance,

Paulie

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. I knew that Itunes can do aiff in windows. I wasnt sure if there was something better out there or not. I am looking at eac and i can not find any setting that would indicate that it can do aiff, am i missing something?

 

Thanks again,

Paul

Hi Paul and all,

 

This is my first post!

 

Yes - I am really interested in this subject. I see a lot of information on this site regarding bit perfect et al, but I see two main issues where your PC (or MAC) is central. 1. Getting the rip bit perfect onto your hard drive. 2. Getting bit perfect data from your hard drive to your DAC (or whatever you are using)

 

For now I am just interested in gettting the rip correct (if I can start this process I can worry about bit perfect data to the DAC at another time)

 

So, if I use Itunes, and use the AIFF import option (with error correction), can I get the rip perfect onto my hard drive on my Vista based PC, or is it not that simple? I see that Chris mentions using iTunesEncode, but is this really necessary. Can't I just use ITunes and get the rip perfect, or do I need these extra add ons to enable me to get my rips perfect.

 

I look forward to hearing your advice,

 

Dan.

Guys, just a little frustrated, trying to use EAC for the first time.

On windows XP, trying to set up EAC to rip to WAV file type, which setting do I use.

Then want to convert to AIFF using iTunesencoder, downloaded it, how do I install it?

Thanks,

 

Jeff

Paulieb,

 

 

I highly suggest you get DBPoweramp Music Converter which has a ripping program. You install the plugins and you can rip to and convert to so many lossless formats. Use WAV and Flac and Ape and stay away from Itunes and all of it's BS.

Why would you want to take a Wav file an make it into AIFF? I would expect the reverse! See my above post about DBPower amp Music Converter.
