Hi, I'm willing to rip my CD collection to high/best mp3 quality. I have read some tutorials but all I found are for older versions and most of them are for .flac.

Can anyone help me to configure my settings to get the best result? I'd appreciate it, thanks.

Thanks a lot to everyone for their responses, it's good to know all that since I'm not a computer expert but I do love my music.

Just to clear a point...I decided to rip my CD collection to .flac (Around a 1,000 cd's) because I read that if I transcode to mp3 it would be like ripping directly from the CD. So, to make it clear, I don't want to rip my cd's again ever if sometime there's a better way to do it, I could transcode from the .flac's I'm going to rip.

I have my EAC 1.0 beta 3 ready, I downloaded the flac.exe, all I need now is the "additional command line option" to rip the best quality flacs.

According to a tutorial I read, it said it should be "-6 -V -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "COMMENT=%comment%" -T "BAND=%albuminterpret%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" %haslyrics%--tag-from-file=LYRICS="%lyricsfile%"%haslyrics% -T "DISCNUMBER=%cdnumber%" -T "TOTALDISCS=%totalcds%" -T "TOTALTRACKS=%numtracks%" %hascover%--picture="%coverfile%"%hascover% %source% -o %dest%"

But, Greynol, you say if I put -2 instead, it will be better quality? I mean, I should change the "-6" to "-2"? or it's somewhere else?

Thanks for all responses I hope someone expert in this topic can set my "additional command line option" to rip my whole collection to .flac high quality please. Thanks guys.
