Thread: Does ripping speed really effect quality?

  1. #1

    Does ripping speed really effect quality?

    My drive will rip much higher but I have chosen to rip at 20 speed, when it is ripping it shows around 14 speed.

    Does ripping higher or lower effect the resulting quality of the audio file, can ripping too high miss information?

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

    no. in fact artificially capping the speed of ripping can potentially cause more problems. Best to let automatically choose speed.

    It is probably a good idea to tell the secure mode of dBpoweramp to vary the speed during playback. If all the passes are at the same speed and the disc is bad, there is a good possibility that the drive will read the disc with exactly the same error each time. Less likely if it reads the disc at different speeds for each pass.

    Change to Secure (Recover Errors) mode.
