EAC not so trustworthy after all
Hey guys,

I'm running EAC having followed Chris Myden's setup guide; In "drive options," accurate stream checked, caches audio checked, and c2 correction unchecked.  This should be secure, no?  I'm getting weird crackling distortions ripping a number of different CDs to both FLAC and LAME.

Where should I be looking for the problem?

Thanks.

Sometimes heavily clipped (loud) records are so bad they make crackling sounds. How do your CDs sound in a CD player?

Other things to consider:
Is there some sort of copy protection on the discs?
Are you using the correct drive read command?

Checking "Drive caches audio" should have no negative side-effects on any drive other than slower ripping. Unchecking it on a drive that does cache audio data can negatively affect quality, and was the reason for the option's existence in the first place.
