I'm in the process of permanently deleting every MP3 on my PC. I've had my final straw with any lossy audio codec and am moving on. I have my sights on a 160GB iPod, and am interested in ripping all of my music to Apple Lossless. The issue is that about a third of my CDs are a little "weathered" and I'm thinking iTunes won't be able to rip the whole album without errors. I'm thinking I need to use EAC to rip the songs to WAV and then use iTunes to convert them to ALAC. I know that by doing this, ID tag entry will be a little more manual but I want to know I don't have any errors on my ripped music, as this is what I listen to 90% of the time. Any thoughts or tips? Thanks!
