The dBpoweramp version that has secure ripping is not free.Even if the latest EAC version is a year old, it still works as it should.
I have the paid version of dBpoweramp, and to me (with a few thousand CDs) the metadata alone is worth the cost. But you might also want to try foobar2000, which now has AccurateRip integration. Look up the Discogs tagging plug-in -- you have to search manually, though. (UTF-8? I don't know. Never actually tried ripping with fb2k.)
From the dBpoweramp homepage: "Free no-obligation, fully functional trial for 21 days."You do get secure ripping but only for 21 days. You can also configure it to generate a log.
Maybe CUERipper/CUETools is doing what you want.
Is it the same with EAC and his "confidence (xx)" in log file ?
It is Green = good (matching CRC), red = bad (mismatching CRC) ?
The trial of dBpoweramp is a full trial (21 days, including all metadata), if you have installed it less than 21 days ago, reinstall (but install in to an account with Administration privileges, then after install set to limited user).

I see no reason to change from EAC ...
A little question : The number in parenthesis (confidence xx) indicates the number of people who have the same AccurateRip report that me ? So the more people there is the better its ? (not sure if my english is ok about this latter sentence)

What I did was to copy to the extracted directory to "program files", renamed it "CUE Tools" and created a link on my desktop for CUETools and for CUERipper.CUERipper gets the metadata from MusicBrainz among others, and since it's a .NET application it should support UTF-8.
Do CUERipper/CUETools automatically create a CUESheet file embedded or not?
It's mainly for testing DMC vs EAC. Also I found (my personal opinion) than the HA wiki on EAC's configuration is not complete. I used this EAC Setup Guide that i found more complete.
