Of all of the things listed by the people who like Fuerio, not one, pragmatic, factual item was listed on why it makes rips, burns, decodes, encodes any better than any other. Not that it doesn’t, it is just I don’t get it. Just some questions:
alamski - Fuerio is quick and simple ? It has a much, much, much more difficult learning curve and interface than let us say, Nero, RecordNow, Media Jukebox, all that I have used extensively.
BoSkin - I believe you need to research some real, practical facts. Can’t believe that you quoted marketing material from Ahead that markets the product as something factual. The CNET reviews were rather humorious. One guy said he doesn’t have to listen to the music to see if it came out good, because Fuerio does it for him. Still haven’t read any “practical” reason why it is better than any other audio burning software.
Trondos - You are my hero and you HAVE researched, used various products and have it together. My experience seems to be most like yours. Several years ago, there were big problems with CD compatability between brands, a whole lot of coasters, lack of standards. But know, I honestly can’t tell the difference with my ears between the EAC, Fuerio products and the “easier interface” products like Media Jukebox, Windows Media Player, Nero and RecordNow. Well let me edit that, I find RecordNow to give me more coasters than any other product with it sometimes crapping out in the middle of a burn, yet CNET picks it as its editors choice, not Fuerio !! But when it does complete its burn, it does sound good.
If I have a old CD, an old album, poor scratched up CD, old 2X CD burner, I probably would look to a product like Fuerio, but now, I believe that picking the interface, feature set, ease of use that you like the most is the most important. I don’t think you will hear any difference at all in the result, which is really what it is all about.
PLEASE don’t take any disrespect alamski abd Boskin. I appreciate your input and your opinions and welcome a rebutable from all. You’re both obviously very intelligent and want to help, I just have a very different opinion than yours.
