Hi,I have read in a number of posts (and the wiki) that the "best" encoding option to use with EAC is "User Defined Encoder". I have ripped ca 400 CDs using "LAME MP3 Encoder", with command line options of "-V 0 --vbr-new" and bitrate set to 256 Kbs (which I thought would be ignored). The LAME version is 3.97. What are the issues of doing it this way, rather than with "user defined encoder" and the extra command line parameters?Andrew
I think it would be preventing the VBR bitrate from ever going below 256; kinda defeats the purpose of VBR, even with V0 the bitrate may often be lower than 256.
Best to first check a few tracks when using any tool before doing the whole thing.
