dbpoweramp cd ripper!!!!! after trying almost everything, I finally found a cd ripper capable of correctly tagging tracks. no more misspellings, inconsistencies & errors. when you listen to mostly non-mainstream music & classical, correctly tagging tracks can be a ridiculous pain. this tool works flawlessly.
mediamonkey 4.0.7x for playing flac audio files (or whatever you've got)...handles everything perfectly with lots of flexibility & options, while not being overly complicated.
Jazz, fusion, Rock, instrumental rock...think Don Caballero, 20th Century Classical....think Shostakovitch, Indian Classical, Salsa, funk....98% of my 1600+ disc collection is instrumental...I'm not big on vocals
I love really nice watches. presently wearing a Breitling
