Best Audio Grabber/i-Tunes bit transparent/AIFF vs WAV files?
on Nov 12, 2006 at 1:47:51 am

I am trying to rip my CD's in the best possible quality. Somebody recommended EAC (http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/) as audio grabber, but it does not seem to exist for Mac's (I'm using a Macbook Pro).
What audio grabber can you recommend for the best quality files?

So far I have been ripping my CD's as AIFF files (44.1kHz, 16 bit, stereo). Would anyone recommend WAV over AIFF? Is there a difference in audio-quality?

Does anyone know whether i-Tunes is "bit-transparent", or whether it at all alters the data in any way shape or form when I use it to rip my CD's?

What I am trying to do is get the best quality file possible, and then go out directly to A high-grade DAC like the Benchmark (http://www.benchmarkmedia.com/dac1/) through toslink or USB.

Any suggestions how to get the best quality files? Does i-Tunes alter the date even if I send it out via toslink or USB? Is there a media-player that would give me a better quality?

Thanks so much for helping out, appreciate it!

Markus
