Thanks for creating such an amazing encoder -- it is rare that I have found a piece of software so well designed to accomplish its goals.

Just an idea: when I'm doing a rip to RAM, dBPowerAmp indicates the ripping speed of the drive. It would be interesting to see in the encoding window the speed of the encoding process, as a multiple of the duration of the song. Sometimes it's nice to know where the bottleneck lies!

I asked the same thing a while back and the answer I got from Spoon was along the lines that he feared newbies would be getting confused when they saw their current song being ripped & encoded at 5x when they had a 52x CD-ROM because they didn't understand that encoding is a lot slower than ripping. Maybe Spoon should add a hidden pref in the registry that could be modified so people who knew what they were doing could....:rolleyes:
