Recently been thinking of transferring all of my CDs to my pc, but dont want to use MP3… I want to retain as much of the audio quality as possible… I know there is always a tradeoff between quality and size and have been looking into lossless audo solutions… however, I know this roughly halves the file size, but retains all the quality. With the relatively low price of large capacity hard drives, and dual layer dvds… storage space is not too much of an issue, but I dont want wavs either!!!
I am therefore looking for a good ripper, and encoding solution, and after reading several articles/forums, have come to the conclusion that Monkey’s lossless audo, and maybe EAC would give the best results…
Anyone got any advice, or recommendations??
In addition… a suitable player… I made the mistake of buying MusicMatch, and regret it ever since, due to its file compatability, or rather lack of it… Winamp seems to be the best around???
