I voted for Ogg Vorbis, since I still prefer it to MP3- but because MP3 and Ogg are pretty much the same these days, I've started putting the music on my site in both Ogg and MP3 formats.


I also voted for FLAC. Easy to use and no known bugs (known to me anyway tongue.gif ).

Also, I use individual tracks rather than complete discs. Annoying that way, although I remember reading there's some reason to do it that way.

Ripping program of choice would also be an interesting poll question to add to the bundle.


EAC would be the clear winner me thinks biggrin.gif

I don't think one can get better than this...

In the future? Ahhh....

I'll rip WAV files onto the Blue-Ray.... yeah... not even using lossy or lossless in the future.


Blue-Ray hardware is expensive. HD-DVD could dominate.

(What an ideal topic for a newcomer like me to try out a first post! Thank you. smile.gif )

I choose AAC for lossy, because I don't need a high bitrate.
I choose WavPack for lossless because of its good efficiency, many functions and -t option. Unfortunately wvgain doesn't have the option, though.
I rip CDs as lossless images for backup purposes.


It seems some "your codec of choice" polls are still open.

Lossy:Lossless:Some people might have voted reminded of their choices of the past, though...


By the way, I followed guruboolez. biggrin.gif
