CD to WAV (quality) 2002-05-24 14:05:10 hi freaks, I want to backup all my CDs as wav files on my harddisk or on other CDs, because I'm not really careful with my CDs.... normally I encode all my CDs with audiocatalyst (before I got to know lame). I just thought that catalyst is state of the art but I dont want to backup my CDs as mp3 files anymore, because maybe in 2 years we have lame 5.0 and I can't reencode my CDs because they dont play anymore so my question: which CD ripper should I use ? Is the quality always the same ? (should be?!?) or is the wav format developing too like the mp3 format does ?
