Reply To: Best music format for Firefly and SoundBridge


Many of the true audio “bitheads” out there seem to like Exact Audio Copy, because for quite awhile it was just about the only tool for doing secure rips. But for me it’s not the easiest to use. I’ve used it in the past, but mostly just for damaged CDs that I couldn’t rip any other way.

My favorite ripper at the moment is the “CD Input” app that’s part of dBPowerAmp Music Converter found here:

Spoon’s new version 12 is really nice for cd ripping, allows both AccurateRip and secure ripping modes, and you can download and install almost any codec you would ever want to use.
