iTunes vs XLD rip CD to apple lossless?

hi, I a lot CDs that I want rip to apple lossless, I use XLD for convert .flac to apple lossless and is great, but I never use to rip CDs, I use itunes, the problem of itunes is the gap seconds, that dont remove (I think )

So whats better for rip CDs to apple lossless without loose any quality? itunes or xld ????

thanks!!

As for quality both of them use Apple's Quicktime library to perform the actual conversion. So you get the exact same result in either case.

But I notice the XLD will used as many CPU cores as you have to do the converson ans so it is faster. Well faster if you have a very fast CD reader. Also for ripping many CDs I think XLD's user interface is faster to navigate.

But the end result is the same.
