What lossless format should I use? I am confused 2003-10-20 14:06:23 I am getting ready to rip my 1,000+ CD collection and I am very confused about which lossless format to use. Some of them support tags, some don't. Some of them say they compress 4:1 and some 2:1. Some say the decoding process takes a lot of cpu juice. Here is what I want to accomplish...1. I am using EAC to rip so the format must be compatible. A command line would help also.2. I want some kind of tags with the songs so when I convert them to another format it creates the tags itself.3. Although disc space is not my primary concern, I would like it to compress as much as possible.4. I would like it to be somewhat fast for encoding and decoding.I must say after reading that I am leaning towards FLAC but Monkey's Audio also seems to be very popular. Any help is appreciated.
