    What's the best Audio CD burner for osx that can make perfect 1:1 copies?
    Something similar to Exact Audio Copy (EAC).

    TIA

    Toast 7 would be my guess.

    Or is it something like Audio Hijack or Wiretap?

    There is nothing available like that for the Mac platform. If you have an Intel based Mac, the best thing would be to dual boot with Win2K or WinXP and run EAC.

    Thanks for the replies. It seems EAC is the only way to go, therefore I'll have to dual boot to XP

    No, there's no EAC for Mac OS X, but there are other things available. Please check out this link for some applications that are helpful for audio extraction:

    Hope this helps!

    I've looked forever for an OSX match for EAC. Best i could recommend is to use xACT to extract aiffs/wavs from cds. It's uses cd paranoia to perform 1:1 extractions and will print a log report after which you can copy and paste into .txt if you need it. I usually just burn in toast after that.

    You're right, xACT does have the ability to rip CDs. Funny that I never noticed that till you mentioned it now. So thanks for that tip.

    You should be able to use the unix command dd to make a bit-for-bit copy of the CD. Look in the man pages for details (unless some with better *nix knowledge than me can help you). :)
