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

I don't know about t-cut. If you search these forums for toothpaste and/or brasso you'll find some suggestions, and the same advice and warnings may apply to t-cut.

Generally, polish radially (never circumferentially). Expect the disc to look worse but play better afterwards. Do not polish (or scratch, or get any polish on) the label side. Label side scratches cannot be repaired this way (or any physical way - the data has gone).

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
David.
