View Full Version : MP3 Ripper

2004-01-26, 15:12
I used RealOne player - I had to subscribe to get adequate speed and bit
rate (the free version won't do full speed CD reading nor higher bit
rate mp3) ... However, using it was a cinch and seemed to work fine on
all my CD's. The experts don't like it though because it uses an encoder
called Xing that is far less quality than something like EAC, which can
be set to use highly professional encoders such as LAME.

Musicmatch, cd in, press record, job done, ejects cd. Great, so glad I
bought a lifetime upgrade when it was at version 2!
