    I recommend cdparanoia. Similar to Exact Audio Copy, it tries to make perfect rips (even if the CD is scratched etc.)
    Oh, right. I use the default GNOME audio extractor (sound-juicer), but if you want a nice front-end to cdparanoia, use k3b, You can install it like this without getting half of KDE:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends k3b

    Re: Highest Quality CD Ripper

    KDE4 has a new application called Audex (its in the 10.04 repo) which is the best ripper I have seen. It does not suffer from the bugs in Audio CD Extractor (Sound Juicer) and K3b where it wont go over 128Kbs (a gstreamer bug apparently), and it correctly handles track numbers order. It also gets the cover art automatically. Very neat, and supports flac and mp3 up to 320Kbs. Its a worthy replacement to KAudioCD creator which used to be my favourite.

    Audex is awesome as long as you are ripping to OGG

    It crashes every time I try to add new profiles such as lame/mp3.

    It often crashes if I try to use anything other than the default ogg extreme quality.

    Kubuntu 10.04 is the OS with 6GB RAM (4GB of which is free)

    RIP FROM WODIM
    ===================


    To copy an audio CD in the most accurate way (rip copy from disc to disc), first run

    Code:
               icedax dev=/dev/cdrom -vall cddb=0 -B -Owav
    and then to write run

    Code:
               wodim dev=/dev/cdrw -v -dao -useinfo -text  *.wav

    or

    ===> Rubyripper command and gui for a secure rip (as in EAC)

    you can have most of the lossless formats with rubyripper

    Command-line also pacpl is very good and in your synaptic ripit is ok too also in your synaptic

    +1 to rubyripper (linux) and EAC (windows/WINE). They wont create any higher quailty rips than other rippers, but the 2-stage ripping process that you can use in both of them does reduce the chance of any bad sectors/glitches/etc..

    AFAIK, wodim only does single-pass rips.

    absolutely right

    but i put it there as it is fast and SILENT you cannot even hear any whirring as it is done gentle on the hardware


    always impressed me


    ps as regard the 2 pass programs i use them EAC and rubyripper

    they make sure you have a copy that is as close to the original as possible although one could argue that it is a smidgeon retentive to insist on that to such a level but in the file-exchange community it is not seen as odd personally a really good copy is fine but one can get overenthusiastic anyway those are the best programs I know of

    but if one wants accurate they are the state of the art i am told by people who understand those things

    Re: Highest Quality CD Ripper

    I'm a fan of Rubyripper howsoever slow it may be. The two trial ripping and subsequent analysis for mismatching chunks is a great idea. Loads quickly and the GUI is straightforward and simple enough to be pleasant unlike some of the abominations I've seen on Windows. See posts 151 and 152 of http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=799621&page=16 for installation instructions on 10.04.
