    Re: CD Spec vs Ripper Configuration

    Glad to hear you found my difficult journey into quality ripping useful! FYI, I got my brand new PX-230A from eSaitech in California. Not exactly cheap, as this is now a discontinued model. Mine was...

    New Berlioz CD has arrived... first the good news! All six tracks now rip successfully first time, but not with the result I expected. dBpoweramp stated that my original disc was in the AccurateRip...

    Re: CD Spec vs Ripper Configuration

    OK Spoon. Ultra Passes set to 1,2 & 1 with Individual Bad Frames at 60, probably higher than it actually needs to be.

    Incidentally, while my TSST Corp TS-H532C initially functioned OK when...

    OK Spoon, point taken re firmware! Can anyone else comment on the importance of moving to v1.03 based on their own experience? Might be academic anyway as I have failed to find a download source for...

    Rip Status "Complete"

    If I insert my "Gregorian Moods" disc to dBpoweramp, all 19 tracks are listed on AMG, GD3 & freedb although the album name and cover art are shown as "Gregorian Chillout, Disc 2". So almost certainly...

    THIRD DRIVE

    Having been away since my last post, and with a brand new PX230A due to arrive here on Monday, would anyone care to comment on my previous post re a suitable USB 2.0 enclosure for it?

    Correction! It's the Belkin, not the Rock, that is reputed to have a "bad chipset". Sorry for error.

    Spoon, you refer to the Teac 224 range! I can only find the DW-224E which certainly is an Internal EIDE drive, but unfortunately it seems to be a Slim model intended for Notebooks. I assume this...

    Re: CD Spec vs Ripper Configuration

    Very interesting point re laser, Brendan. Perhaps a dedicated CD-RW for ripping will give a better chance of a clean rip than a drive designed to handle DVDs as well! This would rule out the Samsungs...
