Hi All:

I've got a challenge of batch ripping thousands of CDs to FLAC. I have a Nimbie autoloader and was told it's either XLD or Max on Mac. I have some questions and would greatly appreciate everyone's help in doing this in the most methodical way.

1) XLD or Max?
2) FLAC settings?
3) Any other information that might help obtain the best quality, properly tagged batch of files?

Thanks for any and all help!

2) FYI, FLAC --best compresses my 5,000+ song collection only 0.4% better than the default setting (-5), though encoding time might not matter when the bottleneck is ripping the CD itself.

See my profile for measurements, tools and recommendations.
