Ok, after purchasing the new Chevelle CD, I've finally decided to take the plunge into using different file formats. My library is all mp3 now, and I've always ripped to 320kbps using EAC. EAC always had rave reviews, but I really questioned the SQ of some of the mp3's it created. It just seemed like I could find better sounding ones...not so legally. Anyway, I use an iPod (unfortunately) for my 9800BT, which I can't live without. Switching CDs drives me nuts. The rest of my library gets played via Google music. Google music accepts FLAC (even though it converts it to 320kbps mp3), so I'd like to convert my entire library to FLAC for the times that I play music on my laptop of home stereo. What is the best program for ripping to FLAC? Also, if anyone has a recommendation for a better program to rip to Apple lossless beside iTunes, let me know. I'll be ripping all my CDs in dual format. I have 1.5TB of storage space on my laptop, which should cover my CD collection (not super huge).
