Best Music Ripper

Recommended Posts

I'm going to begin the process of copying all of my cd's to my hardrive so I can put them on my mp3 player. Question is what is the best program for doing this? I know I could use wmp, but is there anything better out there that will give me quality. (I don't mind paying for it if it is going to give me much better quality than something free) As far as formats go I still haven't decided, my mp3 player supports a lot, mp3, ogg, flac, wma, and wav. Right now I'm leaning toward flac.

I use two programs which remove the digital rights that wma keeps, whilst ensuring very good quality IMO.

The first converts to WMA or Audio Zip and is called CDex Version 1.51 available for free from link

The second converts from WMA to mp3 format it is called WinLAME

from the help file:

winLAME is an encoder for several audio formats, including mp3 (MPEG Layer 3), Ogg Vorbis and more. winLAME lets you set up the encoding process with an easy-to-use wizard-style user interface.

winLAME supports many input audio formats, and uses the LAME mp3 encoding library for encoding and the MAD decoding library for decoding.

winLAME is distributed and licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

also free from this link

Although this is a two step process I find the winLAME conversion the best quality, and the added clicks are worth it in the end.
