Hi,

I looked on the home page of dBpoweramp and i saw that dBpoweramp cost $$$. Is this true ?

Now, i use EAC .99pb5 for ripping my CD in FLAC (with AccurateRip) but EAC seem to have no more support of his developer. The last EAC's update is 1 year ago (May 7, 2009).

When i rip my CD (most are japanese import CD) I need have the UTF-8 (japanese characters) support for tags and track titles. I hate do manually the tags for my ripped CD.

I want know if dBpoweramp is better that EAC ?

Also, EAC take only freedb but dBpoweramp take more (MG, GD3, SonataDB, MusicBrainz and freedb).

Do dBpoweramp take UTF-8 support ?


thank for your opinion.

The dBpoweramp version that has secure ripping is not free.

Even if the latest EAC version is a year old, it still works as it should.


Well, I see. I wanted to try dBpoweramp with secure ripping, but it is not possible with the trial version and more I noticed there was no log as with EAC. (Probably because it is the trial version.)

I have the paid version of dBpoweramp, and to me (with a few thousand CDs) the metadata alone is worth the cost.

But you might also want to try foobar2000, which now has AccurateRip integration. Look up the Discogs tagging plug-in -- you have to search manually, though. (UTF-8? I don't know. Never actually tried ripping with fb2k.)


For the trial version, only freedb is possible as metadata. I tried to rip with foobar2k but seems there is no log ( I need log biggrin.gif). And forgive me if i'm stupid but the "File Integrity Verifier" components is it for the AccurateRip ?

My problem with tagging is than most of my CD collection is japanese music (J-Pop, Animes & video games soundtrack) where the japanese characters are recurring in the track titles and tags. I dunno if the Discogs plug-in can help me for tagging for japanese music CD. When EAC see special characters, it replace them with ?????????.flac or (whatever symbol).flac. As we know that Windows don't accept such symbol in file name, I'm obliged of rename the files in EAC before ripping. Rename files for 1 CD is ok but not 100.


Other question : When i tried dBpowerAMP, I could use FLAC compression. Is FLAC out-of-the-box in DMC or if its because i already installed the FLAC encoder ? The FLAC encoder in DMC is in his last version (1.2.1b) ?

No, that is to see whether the file is corrupted (and it works for lossy formats too). Right-clicking and choosing "Utilities", you will find a menu item for verification with AccurateRip.
