  1. Re: Is "Secure" really necessary? What am I missing?

    No, it's not. But then again, you could be using any other (free) ripping program which doesn't care about data integrity.

    Re: Best FLAC

    I meant that a DAC / digi-interface can do both (buffering and upsampling.)

    Re: rip a WAV file

    No. You need to manually cut the .wav to individual tracks and then run a converter program to make them FLACs and then (probably) manually tag them as well.

    Re: Best FLAC

    Jitter is dealt with by buffering and reclocking the incoming bit stream in the playback device. It has nothing to do with upsampling (which is: adding zeros to the stream) but they can be done at...

    Re: Best FLAC

    Upsampling and jitter are like peanut butter and apples, two completely different things that have no correlation to one another. Percieved audio "quality" might improve by altering the original...

    Re: Best FLAC

    I'm guessing his DAC does upsampling, so if you feed it 16/44 or 24/96 the upsampling algorithm will be different, hence the audio output as well.

    Re: How to rip a SACD?

    I see, they've made some progress then. That's the 0ldsk00l way, back in '06 if I recall correctly?

    Re: How to rip a SACD?

    Well, for starters, you press "play" on one end and hit "record" on the other. You are basically just recording digital data like you would do with analogue data on a cassette deck. You need to chop...

    Re: Worn CD - Insecure Rip

    Depends entirely on your level of OCD. Your rip might be just one bit off from perfect, or it could be a thousand bits, but you or anybody else might not hear the difference (compared the bit-perfect...

    Re: Ripping Level Question (help?)

    A very rough estimate is 500MB per CD at FLAC quality. That would give only 250GB for 500 cd's, given that there are no multiple-disc titles in there.

    Re: CD Ripper Question

    Most of times the 24bit files have been mastered differently, so a direct A/B comparison is rather pointless.

    Re: CD Ripper Question

    To rip what? CD's at 24bit quality? It will only degrade the audio quality. Rip CD's at 44.1KHz 16bit.

    Re: Does ripping speed really effect quality?

    It can if you are reading in burst mode. Secure mode = no effect.

    Disc is not copy protected and not scratched? Did you try removing C2 pointers from settings?
