    Hi,
    Any good audio CD ripping/extraction programs out there, possibly with inbuilt mp3 encoding/decoding?

    Thanks.

    Exact Audio Copy

    it is THE best cd ripper.

    But i use CDex for its ability to bypass the protection on CD's that i have purchased. I dictate what i do with my CD's... not them

    I use CDex and really like that, and dBPowerAmp is a good one too.

    Yeah exact audio copy is the best, i've used cdex too, but with original cd's (the ones you buy in the store) the program would give huge amount of jitters in the first track, the other tracks were fine, this doesn't happen with EAC....oh and btw, it would be nice if you'd do some research yourself first, and then come asking here, you can also use the search on the forums, cuz there have been numerous amounts of posts with the same questions...Enjoy your ripping!

    Exact Audio Copy is definitely the way to go.

    www.exactaudiocopy.de

    also, highly recommend reading a few of the tutorials first so you get it set up correctly.

    i use Easy CD-DA it encodes decodes any format thats worth having and you can convert it aswell. and it rips cds

    but its not free. but it has a 30 day uncrippled trial:) enough time to burn your whole cd collection:cool:

    Good old Audio Catalyst or if you are more fussy Sonic Foundry Soundforge

    Pffttt... AudioCatalyst is a 2nd rate ripper encoder. The nerve of Xing to charge people for it.

    CDex and ExactAudioCopy is free and are first rate ripper encoders hands down.

    Audio Quality is the issue here and they win hands down

    I suggest everyone read the EAC site and see why you will get the best rips from EAC...
