EAC is a great tool to rip CD:s with. I’ve used it a lot. When I moved to Mac I started using dbPowerAmp which also is a great tool for ripping CD:s.

Moreover, both can use the “AccurateRip” database which helps my CD-ripping nervosa by telling me if my rips concur with the majority of other people’s rips of the same CD or not (even down to different issues and pressings).

+1 for dbPowerAmp - it's a great tool for ripping CDs.

What if the majority of other people's rips are wrong? :wink:

(I am glad I don't suffer from that sort of nervosa.)

I assume this is tongue-in-cheek, but in the case it's not, everyone else's rips would need to be in accurate in exactly the same way, which with any decent sample size would be statistically impossible.

The idea is to verify your rips without having to listen to each second of them listening for audio glitches.

I was answering tongue in cheek but also being serious that I don't care if my rip is the same as everyone else's. I just want the music.

USB ports on some PCs have a lot of electrical noise that reaches the DAC via the USB cable.
No USB involved anywhere. Server -> ethernet -> laptop -> ethernet -> streamer. Other path was server->ethernet->streamer.
