    Max 0.7.1 uses CD paranoia to rip audio CDs and is a great app for converting files between different formats once you have ripped them (including many lossless to lossless conversions).

    I agree, Max is definitely great stuff!

    Oh, and don't be afraid to use the 'unstable' version. It is usually stable enough and just a bit more developed.

    I just bumped into Max for making MP3s out of ringtones that I make in Sound Studio. Fabulous! Very nicely designed app. Don't know that I'll use it for iTunes ripping just yet, but very, very nice.

    The only thing Max could really use is the ability to import WMA. Although I can understand why it doesn't have that.

    Another vote for Max. Actually not even a vote for Max. If your serious about ripping and encoding the files, you use Max. End of story. It's great.:)

    Edit: And if you're not, you use iTunes.
