Hi all,

Been having a read about before I ask. I've installed EAC and just getting LAME setup.

Before I used the "best mp3 guide" but the site seems to no longer exist.

From memory I used the old "--preset fast standard" command line switch.

I will use the new LAME 3.98.2

Now from what I understand this is no longer needed as it has been replaced with the newer LAME versions?

What command line now does one need? I think "standard" setting is fine for me. The results before were fantastic, that's why I want to use EAC and LAME again.

From the Wiki I read I can just use:


Is that all I need to put in the command line?

What is --vbr-new ???

Then I found this guide:

http://www.uberstandard.org/ ---------------- Is this up to date?

Which says use this command line:

-V2 %s %d

I just wonder if someone could set me on the right path.....

I'm just after good old "preset standard" from back in the day.

Thanks for the help. :-)

I would change the first item from the default for sure.

The second item depends on whether EAC can grab the data properly from your drive assuming you have discs with this information. I have it unchecked, even though my drive can get the data I have it disabled. This information is useless to me.

The third item is also a matter of preference.

dBpoweramp is an excellent program. I don't find configuring it to be any easier than EAC, but others insist that it is.

Your eyes cannot hear.
