Best linux encoder - transcoder

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I'm looking for a good encoder - transcoder to import CD's on my PC and transfer music on my portable player on Linux.

 

I heard about Grip, Rubby Ripper or DbPowerAmp with wine which works quite well.

 

What is the best alternative keeping in mind that the aim is the best quality ??

The "best" is always a personal thing.  Sound Juicer works well.  I would rip CDs to flac, the open source lossless codec.  As transcoding software, SoundKonverter works fine.  More info:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CDRipping

Rip and archive music in a lossless format, like FLAC. (preferably with a tool that supports AccurateRip)

 

For lossy codecs for listening with a portable player I suggest: LAME (mp3), oggenc aoTuV (ogg vorbis)

All of that is part of my knowledge. But is there an encoder that allows log files with the output and that is very accurate ??

 

For example SoundJuicer doesn't use accuraterip.

 

Anyone else ?

EAC can be run through wine.

Yes so there is no program especially done for linux to do the same thing as EAC does on windows??

 

If so it means that I'll have the same config as on windows : EAC and DBPowerAmp.

SO far I'm trying XFCA. Nice program and the quality seems to be good.
