I have been using foobar and or winamp with lame to rip my mp3s and flacs.


What benefits do I get from EAC? Is it better error correction? If my cds have no scratches do I need EAC?

Please explain as when I looked into EAC settings I found a 6 page guide on customizing settings, and with winamp everything is auto, am I missing something, quality wise?

Use a ripper that check for the AccurateRip database. If it is correct than you don't need to use EAC. Use EAC only if you have problems with your normal ripping software (because the CD is damaged).

EAC forces your CD/DVD drive to work hard, reducing it's life.
