I use it coz it’s basically a no-brainer.
Just set the bit rate you want for mp3s. Default is 128kbps which is noticably inferior to original sound even to my tone deaf ear. Accordingly, I’ve got it set for 224 kbps which is, to me, indistinguishable from the original (though most people find 192kbps quite sufficient).
Only other setting I’ve changed from the defaults is so that it shows cd-text, if present.
Once you’ve made those changes, if you’re not happy with the defaults, just click the appropriate button and let it rip. Btw, you can retrieve cddb info before ripping by just clicking the relevant button if you’re on-line before ripping.
Of course, if you’re going to rip to wav, you don’t really need to change anything.
