I thought I would start a new thread as I have discovered, what to anyone that knows maths and systems is probably blindingly obvious.

Firstly I downloaded dB poweramp to a single PC. 29

I then bought a USB DVD writer at low cost. 20

I already have a USB 3 1Tb drive and a 500gig hard drive.

dBPoweramp seems to allow you to run multiple copies simultaneously on the same PC, allocating a CD drive and a hard drive to each piece of open software.

By seperating the CD's out into two piles, clean CD's and scratchy CD's you can ensure that when you put a scratchy CD in drive A, drive B continues to work at full speed processing good CD's. The throughput of drive B is thus not effected by the slow scratchy ones. Also non-ripping activities such as unboxing and changing CD's occur whilst the other drive is still ripping.

So for 20 my throughput of rips is at least 4x faster.

I also chose to save as FLAC 0, because it is quick. Presumably if I wanted to I could batch convert seperately overnight?

Any other tips for increasing speed for multiple rips?

I think you're deluding yourself, but whatever...
