Wish is the number one of audio ripper?


I wonder wish audio ripper some is the best and number one out there.

Thanks kenta

I don’t know about Number One,but Easy CD-DA Extractor works very well. It can
rip cd files into MP3 files of varying bitrates/quality. Very,very good.

Do a search on Yahoo for it…:cool:

EAC is recognised as one of the best, when coupled with LAME you can make mp3s.



LAME (this is the latest stable version, there is a newer version being tested (in its alpha stage) but it is not reccomended for uses other than testing):


And a setup guide:


Also Winamp 2.92 is a good MP3, CD e.t.c. player, here is the download link (I didn’t post Winamp 3 as it is actually worse (much heavier on recources) than winamp 2 or winamp 5 (as it is only in its development stages) which will combine the best features from winamp 2 and winamp 3):

Yeah, personally I use EAC and it is a wonderful piece of program. Moreover, it is freeware (actually, “postcardware”).
And, as fas as I know, it is the only ripper which gives full control of offsets…

If you look for it at http://www.exactaudiocopy.de, don’t mind that this is a ‘beta’ or ‘prebeta’ version…
Andre (the author) must be a great programmer, since the program is really stable!

If you really care for the accuracy of your cd-rips, have a look also at

Good luck,


EAC is more for power users, but is great software, of course.

I’ve used CDex (also freeware) for about 5 years now, and it’s very good.
