I have an old account but I haven't posted in a long time, can't remember the email I registered with so I started this account. Anyway, I've ripped my CD collection several times (once at 128kbps, then again at 192kbps, then again at v0) each time with Easy CD-DA Extractor. Didn't always rip all at once, but the settings were pretty much the same till I changed so many CDs could have been ripped with different LAME versions as well.

Anyway, I'm sticking with v0 and I'm ready to re-do the entire collection at the same time with the same LAME version and settings. I don't want to be kicking myself again in a few years so I wouldn't mind a few opinions before I do everything and realize I did something incorrectly again in a few years.

After reading this forum a lot, the Exact Audio Copy wiki, and general Google searches, this is my final:

Software: Exact Audio Copy (0.99 Prebeta 4)

LAME: 3.98.4-vc6

Command Line: -V 0 --id3v2-only --ta "%a" --tl "%g" --tn "%n" --tt "%t" --ty "%y" --tg "%m" --tc "rbm (eac secure mode)" %s %d

I'm looking for the highest quality v0, rip time doesn't matter. From my reading this is the best command line I can get, am I missing anything?

Also, it seems like LAME 3.98.4 is highly recommended, is there a different version I should be using?

Thanks.

For those using linux e.g. on their NAS - the great mp3fs http://khenriks.github.io/mp3fs/#introduction provides always up-to-date version of your FLAC library in MP3, whenever you need it.
