Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Should definitely mentioned that, my bad. Sweden, Östergötland. Not really near any of the major cities.
Ok, would these fit budget? 300 euro, but unsure how import taxes/duty(?) would affect, with Sweden in EU.

The 3 you listed would need a sub and/or be limited in volume with tiny woofers (3-4")

General - (fb2k) / Re: [Suggestions / Wishlists] for future updates
Last post by OffSignal -
Hello, I have a simple and quick suggestion, I don't think it has been suggested before.
I would very much like another mode to be added in the "Order" dropdown menu: stop after the currently playing track, which could be summarized as Stop (@end of track) or Last track or something similar.
Maybe the "Order" label should be renamed "Play Mode" or something along this line.
I think it's simple to add and some other people may find this useful, but maybe I'm wrong.
I wish you the best, thanks =)

There's unfortunately nothing like that in my area.
Without knowing what country you are in, not possible to make specific recommendations for budget
Should definitely mentioned that, my bad. Sweden, Östergötland. Not really near any of the major cities.

-----------------------

Thanks for the input so far, I looked around and none of the suggestions are directly available to me.
What is available so far is:
Adam A3X (at 600 euro / pair + all cables, slightly out of price range but can be done)
Klipsch R-41PM
System Audio Saxo 3

Based on the descriptions of the last 2 it seems like they will try to enhance the audio though (as it seems they expect mostly digital input and Analog via RCA is a "bonus"?), not sure I want that when my signal is already analog?

CUETools / Re: CUERipper doesn't like my drive.
Last post by GhostEMP -
I have this issue but with a laptop that has an internal drive (which is recognized by EAC as well as other CD ripping software), but for some reason CueRipper always says there's an "error in the logical unit" whenever I try to use it to rip any CD.
It doesn't run into this problem with an all-in-one desktop that I also use for ripping CD's.

CUETools / Does CueTools support index mark-based splitting?
Last post by GhostEMP -
EAC can capture the index markers within individual tracks on a CD and can rip them according to that, but does CueTools have this ability?
If it does not, then would it be possible to include support for it?

Below is an example of a cuesheet with index-marked tracks. At the moment it doesn't seem like any other ripping (or splitting) software besides EAC can handle it. It would be nice if CueTools could do this as well.

Validated News / Re: TAK 2.3.1
Last post by d4k0 -
Who are those "some" and why they don't recommend foobar2000 for reencoding?
Many people here can confirm that using foobar2000 for re-encoding is safe.

I searched and found one post I remembered again on Hydrogenaudio:

https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=106974.msg879004#msg879004

To be more precise: There is no technical problem with Foobar2000 and reencoding, but Foobar2000 can't replace/update existing files, it always creates new one which creates extra work afterwards.

The "easiest" solution seems to add some characters to the new file name. When the encoding is done, you have to delete all files without the the extra characters and remove these characters from the new files:

I have a conversion preset set up in Foobar, it converts to Leve 8 and adds "~~" to the beginning of every file name. Once conversion is done, delete every file that doesn't have the prefix and use something like MP3tag to remove it from the new files.
I also like to bit-compare the new files before deleting the old ones, i might just be paranoid though.
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=106974.msg878938#msg878938

You can still use the source folder option, but rename the output file to include something that differentiates it from the original. Of course, you'll need to have space available for the converted tracks plus the original until you delete the originals.

What I would do, use source folder, and and then use %filename%-16 for the output filenames, this will allow you to convert, then you can easily filter out all the tracks that don't have "-16" in the filename and remove them.

Depending on how much space you have available, you can convert an album or group of tracks at a time.
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=98750.msg854514#msg854514

There also seems to be foo_run, but there doesn't seem to be much documentation:

You can't replace the source files with converter. The term "converter" may be a bit misleading as it doesn't convert the originals. It allows encoding a new copy.
If you absolutely must replace files in place it can be performed with foo_run.
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=117340.msg968867#msg968867

I think I will probably use the extra character solution.



Just be sure not to enable DSP, Additional decoding and ReplayGain in Converter settings. And you can use Binary Comparator ( https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_bitcompare ) after conversion to compare resulted files with sources.

Thanks, I'm already using Binary Comparator, it's a really useful plugin  ;).
