There are even applescripts to do the MP3 encoding with LAME, if you would
prefer that over iTunes' encoder. I believe it is called 'iTunes-LAME' and
findable on the usual places like macupdate.com.
Of course, this adds one extra step (selecting the script after shoving
the CD in, vs. having iTunes do everything automagically - haven't
figured out how to get it to automatically stick a new CD in, and I
couldn't train the dog to tell the difference between already
ripped/encoded CDs and the ones that need to be done, so I have to do
that bit by hand too.).
