Now I know there will be a lot of people saying "no mp3 will sound as good as lossless" and lots of other possible arguments here so I'll narrow it down as much as I can:
I have a lot of CDs that I'm looking to rip into mp3s so I could have them on my ipod being that Ipod is my main source of music in the car.
I'm looking to have my mp3s in high(er) guality - 256 and/or 320kbps but those few converters I've used in past all have a lot more other options as for what I want my end result to be - Audio Sample Rate (44 Hz???), DB Volume (bass boost??)....
I've used a few different free softs in past but this time I'm willing to buy one if it will make a difference in anything. So:
1. What converter would you recomend?
2. What are the optimal settings to use when converting CDs to mp3s?
