Hi all. Newbie here. I’ve used the search function for about an hour now and can’t find an answer to my questions.
I’m using EAC and LAME to rip my cds to mp3s. Does it make a difference in mp3 quality what cd/cdrw drive is used to rip my cds? I’m not meaning how fast it can rip a cd, or how well it can read scratched up cds. If EAC states that there were no errors during extraction of the cd, can I assume I have the best quality mp3s possible using this combo of software?
I’ve been using a sony vaio laptop to do all of my ripping, and the equipment isn’t even close to some of the equipment I’ve been reading about.
Also, does it effect the quality of the extraction or encoding if I’m using the computer, while ripping/encoding, to surf the internet or to word process?
