Audiograbber is good, no question about it. And most of the time you would need nothing else. But, still, EAC has something no other ripper I know of has (when properly configured): accurate error reporting. EAC does not extract better than, say, Audiograbber, but WHEN IT CANNOT EXTRACT a piece of audio data, it does something that for me, is invaluable: it tells you.
This way, if the EAC log says that no error ocurred, you can pretty much rest in peace (and with a Lite-On drive, even more so). When you do what I do, which is buy CDs by the dozen, then rip them all and encode then and load then in my DAP, sometimes without having ever listened to them, so I can take on the road with me... what would you feel when you find out, away from home and from any possible solution that your tracks have pops and clicks? Sure a lot of people can deal with this. Not me.
That is why I cherish secure extraction so much.
Apparently this problem has no easy solution. Well, as I told before, EAC's Burst mode AND Test & Copy is secure extraction, and with my drive, I can extract an average CD in 5 minutes.
