View Full Version : Current CD ripping guide? I want to do it right once.

Jan 9, 2010, 04:39 PM
Can anyone point me towards a current CD ripping guide please. Everything I find seems old and possibly outdated. I have over 300 CD's that I want to start ripping but want to do it right from the start so I don't have to redo it at a later time.

I just got a Mac and my ipod is on it's way. I would like to use error correction and have a bit rate that is the best human ears can distinguish, anything above that is a waist imho.

So am I right in thinking MP3s at 256 kbit/s and AACs at 192 kbit/s would be good? and use VBR?

I would like to set up Itunes library the best way with the least amount of redundancy.

Without getting into a huge debate if possible, should I just stick with AAC now that I have switched to Mac and plan on using Ipod?

thanks please
