High quality ripping drive, robot and software recommendation sought 2017-09-13 01:06:39 Hello All,In the past I have used EAC with NEC 3520 drives (IDE!) to rip my CDs to FLAC, but this was a slow process, and I eventually lost interest after ripping about 700 or so CDs. In any case, my current motherboard does not support IDE drives, so I thought it would be a good idea to post here to enquire about the current state of play in drives, software and so on.Clearly, I am in need of a high quality drive to rip my CD collection. The drive could be a Blu-ray, DVD or CD mechanism, it does not matter so long as the read performance and error correction are really good. As a large chunk of my collection has not yet been ripped (about 3000 CDs), I'm also looking into the option of getting a CD ripping robot (auto-loader). What drives, software and robots would forum members recommend? I prefer to avoid slot loaders as my case is set up for traditional drawer loading drives.Suggestions and comments on what are the best choices would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
