Ripping to FLAC with a Mac

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm just getting started in higher end audio, and while I wait for the new Sony NW-ZX1 to arrive in the US, I thought I would re-rip my CDs into FLAC.  I'm going for the best sound possible.  

 

However, from what I can tell, the programs to rip audio on a Mac are not that great.  I'm currently using XLD, and I have tried Max, but neither seems to be very user-friendly, although XLD works fine.  I'd prefer it if they organized my files automatically, but they don't seem to do this. 

 

Are there any other suggestions I'm missing?  Is there a good XLD tutorial then?

 

Thanks!

If you're on a Mac, why not rip to ALAC, then convert what you want to your portable DAP to 320kb/s MP3?

XLD is a fantastic ripping/encoding swiss army knife, rivaling EAC on PC.  It can do everything you want.  Here is a pretty comprehensive setup tutorial.
