You're absolutely correct, CD's are the way to go, but they aren't the perfect solution either. Most of my collection was bought used and I'm always shopping for new (used) stuff, but it's crazy to see how bad CD's deteriorate. That old stuff from the 80's and 90's, especially the discs with the chrome tops, hold them up to a light source and it's crazy to see how many of them have pinholes, which means there's no longer any music in that hole. And I'm talking about discs that in many cases don't have a scratch on them.

A disc with pinholes could give you a confidence of 5, but a truly perfect one would probably be much higher.

That's not how confidence works. The confidence of 5 means that 5 other people ripped the exact same CD (same pressing) and got the exact same result.

Moreover, the new version of AccurateRip does recognize different pressings, as evidenced by your ripping log.

Track 1: Ripped LBA 37 to 24940 (5:32) in 1:21. Filename: F:\Elton John\Sleeping with the Past\01 Elton John - Durban Deep.wav
AccurateRip: Accurate (confidence 4) [Pass 1]
CRC32: 0E9887A1 AccurateRip CRC: C8D19798 (CRCv2) [DiscID: 010-0012b4fa-00948737-810b3c0a-1]
AccurateRip Verified Confidence 4 [CRCv2 c8d19798]
AccurateRip Verified Confidence 19 [CRCv1 9c42d4c7]
AccurateRip Verified Confidence 22 [CRCv1 ff5f40ca], Using Pressing Offset -278
AccurateRip Verified Confidence 12 [CRCv1 7c6c2fa3], Using Pressing Offset -685
