Hello,

first post...so be gentle.

I run a PC with an I7 920 chip, 5GB RAM, an RME HDSPe AIO soundcard but only have one DVD writer installed in terms of optical drives. I listen through Sennheiser HD 650's so want the best possible sound quality. I am playing back through Foobar. Got two internal hardrives and a USB 3 external.

I have started ripping my CD collection with EAC, both to archive and play them back but it seems to take about 30+ minutes per CD, and I have a couple of hundred.

I have a lack of technical knowledge at the moment and wondered if you could help. From what I have read it is not the drive but the software that determines the rip accuracy. If I purchased another drive for reading discs either internal or external, could I rip several CD's at the same time to speed up the process?

I don't need to write CD's just rip.

Many thanks

Chimmy
