Hello, I am running iTunes 9.0.3. on OSX 10.5.8. I am ripping CD's to Apple lossless format. I am ripping with error correction enabled. On several discs, I have heard a 'blip' a little sound bump which happens at around 3-4 seconds in to the first track of the CD. This has happened on multiple CD's. This shows up when played on iTunes (iMac), Apple TV, and iTunes on a PC running win 7 (all are using copies of the same files). The only solution is to delete and rip again. I thought turning on error correction would solve it, but it does not. In fact I thought that having the error correction on would make the rip happen slower and more precisely than not having error correction, but the reverse seems to be true. With error correction 'on' the rip happens at around 12x speed, with error correction off it happens at around 3x speed and takes much longer. This seems a little backwards to me. Is something wrong here? Is there an alternative CD ripper of better quality for Mac? If I upgrade to Snow Leopard would a get a better iTunes?
