Which is better do you think quality, speed and reliability wise?
I've only tried CDex. Found no need to try anything else.
Ive always used cdex...so cant give a comparison on performance...but cdex has yet to let me down
For ripping from CD's
If you want Quality and Reliability... you should use Exact Audio Copy. It rips 1:1 copies of the song and eliminates any annoying pops etc from bad CD's.
If you're looking for Speed then use CDex.
I use both. CDex can't compare to EAC for ripping but CDex does the same job for encoding =P
Nowadays, it'd be better to use the Ogg standard as fraunhofer (the people holding the patent to mp3) are charging programmers when they make any kind of mp3 decoding system.
Ogg is and always will be a free open source alternative

CDex is much better... better quality...better speed
CDex used that for years now never no trouble with it at all.
