I am an old audiophile just getting started with a new music server. I want the best fidelity possible - the least amount of compression possible. What is the best (or very good ones in “your” esteemed opinions) Ripping Software…the best (yada yada) File Formats to use (wav, FLAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, etc.)…the best ripping speed…etc., etc…???
If it is relevant, I will be using a Squeezebox Duet routed to a good external DAC, via either my laptop (VISTA) or my PC (XP), via my 802.11b Wi-Fi router.
Other suggestions/advice appreciatedâ€¦
THANKS IN ADVANCE…
