I would suggest RipperX. It can be found in the repository and can be installed using Synaptic(dependencies will be taken care of). I am using it for a week now and it is nice.
You can choose from various bit rates including 128k, 256k and 320k(max).
can choose different VBR quality
Can rip to mp3, ogg, flac
Has CDDB which can find track info online and attach tag n ids to the tracks
Has GUI and in few clicks you are good to go !!!
I am using it on 10.04 and so far so good
And WHY THE F is MP3 not the default format for exporting a cd to your library? Majority of the people would want mp3, why is ogg the default for? Give me a break!
Why use Sound Juicer or one of the many stand alone applications instead of say, Rhythymbox, Banshee or Exaile? If the LAME encoder is what is used, shouldn't quality and settings be the same? Still fairly new to this. On my main desktop at work I still use iTunes for encoding and Mediamonkey for my tag editing/album art. Trying to familiarize myself with some new stuff here.
Kind Regards, Leona
