    it's actually all a matter of opinion. Me, i choose to use MusicMatch Jukebox. Love using the MP3Pro audio format. same quality as an original MP3, but half the size.

    Argh, you can't be serious! mp3PRO is a hideous format. The sound is appauling and it's not even a free compression medium.

    .ogg on the other hand sounds great even at 50k, encoded at 128k most cant tell the difference between the ogg and originating wav, and of cource, it's open source.

    Hendrik: if you're showing off ur fav encoding options.. i just wanna put my 2c worth in ;)

    i dont encode for size.. i encode for quality and cannot tell the difference between cd and this personally...

    look @ attachment for my settings ;)

    iTunes is probably still quite a way off though.
    (didn't they say it was aimed for around December time?)

    Im pretty sure there is another thread about the same thing floating around in here... but Im way too lazy to post a link...anyway

    I use SoundStream from Roxio.... is very much sexy: can rip from 32kbps to 320kbps, simple to rip single track to whole CD without a whole lot of mess. All in all, its pretty nifty

    Aside from .ogg, Lame VBR -alt presets with EAC is still the best.

    Sparsely chants this to himself.

    use mp3 strip it! digital it uses the blade codec (which is the best) but it takes a little longer to encode songs then lame of lossless or some of the others

    Speedy_B, i don't see any problem with MP3pro. unless it started off as crap, i don't notice a bit of difference, unless u can prove otherwise. if i rip from a cd right to mp3pro, or from a good quality MP3 that i already have and convert it to mp3pro, i don't notice a difference

    Cdex and EAC - I use the lame.dll 3.92 on mine .. It works perfect and the sound quality is great ..

    Something else that is getting popular also is monkey audio ..

    Hey whats the name of that codec? I use EAC /LAME but it converts it to a wav file. Which works pretty good also.
