Hey there,
I want to digitalize my CD collection, and thus, I am looking for software to convert CDs into FLAC and ALAC file formats. As I've read though a couple of threads, it appears that Exact Audio Copy, dBpoweramp and foobar2000 are the most populare ones. Most users seem to choose EAC/foobar2000 over dBpoweramp because they are free. However, I don't realy care whether the software is free or not (38$ is not that big of a deal). So I am wondering, if the main differences between EAC and dBpoweramp is just the more simplified and polished user interface, since both use AccurateRip and therefore should have the same ripping quality?

Thanks for your help!

Ripping accuracy is dependent on the drive more so than software. Hence yes eac is equally as good as dbp since they both use secure ripping modes and compare checksums with online databases. Newer drives dont necessarily guarantee better performance, I have a newish lg cd writer that is quick, but starts to stutter on the last tracks of 70+ minute cds at which point I turn to an ancient matshita which handles long as well as non compliant cds with ease.
