Time really does fly...AccurateRip has now been running for 10 years and has processed 143 million discs over those years and has been used by almost quarter of a million people, it is satisfying to know that there are this many people who care about the quality of their rips.

Here is to the next 10 years...

Spoon, in my opinion you and Andre both deserve the gold medal for your contributions to truly secure ripping. Too bad the CD medium itself is in decline--someday soon no one will be ripping anything. Fortunately, you still make the best trans-coding software, too, so you'll never be out of work.

Congratulations on 10 great years. emot-toot.gif

That is my biggest frustration. CD's are indecline and being replaced by crappy lossy iTunes and MP3's. If only iTunes provided a lossless version sad.gif

I assume you mean the iTunes Store, since iTunes supports ALAC. I don't think you'll have to wait too long. The Apple Media Guide that was released several months ago requests content providers to provide remastered-for-hi-res 24/96 source files to Apple for the iTunes Store. Rumor has it that they're going to adopt the HD-AAC codec, which allows for having one hi-res lossless source file (up to 24/192) from which you can extract or stream lossy AAC and/or downsampled 16/44 lossless files (I don't know if these would also be HD-AAC or transcoded to ALAC for compatibility). Expect to see HDTracks-type prices, especially now that HDTracks is offering ALAC files for the same price as FLAC.

I would guess that spoon is looking into how much it would cost to license HD-AAC for dbPoweramp. Personally, I'd pay more for the Reference version if it supported HD-AAC.

You're making this sound as if this development was a good thing. Pointless overpriced hi-res downloads (especially if tied to a certain piece of software or vendor) will not improve anything, the next big step would be to offer multichannel audio.
