You could, of course, use a specialised audio program such as feurio or exact audio copy if you want very high quality copies, but this will take you a lot longer
After having a quick look though the forum, I found that EAC is meant to give better sound, is this true?
EAC doesn’t give better “sound”.
Feurio doesn’t give better “sound”.
They only give better sound if the disc is in bad condition, scratched, or reader is poor…
With EAC properly configured you know if your extraction has been perfect. (It rips twice and compare WAVs depending on reader).
With Feurio and a reader that shows C2-error information, you know the extraction has been perfect if no C2-error is showed.
(If there are C2 errors maybe it’s perfect, maybe it’s not, because 2 out of 3 kind of C2 errors are correctable by hardware.)
You can extract WAVs from copies and original CDs and compare the WAVs with EAC “Compare WAVs” tool.
You’ll see that almost all dics are digital perfect. Then, if they sound different it’s a matter of CDRs quality or compatibility.
Feurio won’t take you any longer than Nero (in fact it’s easier and faster), and EAC usually is a bit slower extracting.
The difference is Feurio is a professional program and Nero is a toy with bugs.
