Thank you for the replies.Mavere: My current collection is in mp3 320, which I ripped many years ago. The case is that I'm a car-pc user and I don't have the space for all my CD's if ripping to FLAC (I have MANY CDs), so I'm considering ripping to .opus. But I would like to do some listening-tests before starting the "big" project.
db1989: I'm not asking how to use Google, I know that. I'm interested in knowing what software the people that DO ue the .opus format uses! When using DBPA, there's some problems in regards to the tagging-process, so I'm interested in trying other alternatives...
Even in lossless, you could get ~ 10 000 CDs on a single 3TB hard drive these days, and even 4TBs are available.
I don't have a stereo equipment that would justify using nothing but lossless files

Is foobar still the best option ? Or is there anything better ?

(I still wonder why not go lossless once you do the rip job.)I settled on dBpoweramp (the paid Reference ) when I ripped my CD collection some nine years ago. I would have to check the competition's metadata coverage if I were to do it now. Both dBpoweramp, EAC and CUERipper (which is new since then) certainly have something to offer over fb2k.
For opus encoding only, for my smartphone
Personally, I think that a CD is already a good lossless storage (duh...), so whenever I need the lossless source, I'd simply put the CD into the drive.
