At last its arrived. Will we have a new champion?
But I won’t be able to try it until June.
I look forward to seeing a comparison of Exact Audio Copy, dBpowerAMP 12 (Reference) and PerfectRip. dBpowerAMP is my current favorite, but it does have problems with some very badly damaged CDs and refuses to complete in either Secure or Burst mode on any drive. Most annoying is that version 11.5 could sometimes produce miraculous results on these discs using the same drive.
