... level 5 compression ... to get best quality audio?
Most people have no problems with level 9 compression
Use of -8 is not without risk as it requires more decoding power than does the default -5.

Was EAC also ripping in Secure mode?Still, any secure mode should not take as long as 29 minutes. And really, if EAC were ripping in burst mode, that shouldn’t really take 6 minutes, either.I’m going to move this to CD Hardware/Software in Hydrogenaudio’s main section, as it is not completely specific to fb2k and may get more views (and thus potentially responses) there.
