I have decided to rip 200+ CD's to FLAC since I finally have my home sound system networked to a home PC. My plan is to bring CD's to work and rip while I'm at my desk. I'm using EAC and have setup per these instructions: LINK REMOVED

My questions is based on the setting linked can I work as normal on my PC without glitches in the Rip? I've complete about a half dozen CD's without any errors in the log.

Actually EAC will launch FLAC processes in the background too. dBpoweramp's advantage is that it will burst rip tracks, check them against the AccurateRip database, and only rip them in "secure" mode when needed. Ripping a CD in good condition only takes 5 minutes. Whereas EAC can only rip all tracks either in burst rip mode or in secure mode. You can choose the former and manually re-rip tracks in secure mode when needed, but that takes user involvement, where dBpoweramp is fully automated.
