Ripping WAV (lossless) with WMP11 - near EAC quality? Reply #25 – 2007-03-30 12:17:21 Quote from: greynol on 2007-03-30 07:28:37Quote from: astroboy on 2007-03-30 06:35:15I am skeptical because I have found no evidence comparing EAC ripping with WMP or any other ripping, despite the ease with which this could be done....and I'm guessing you're probably not interested in finding any evidence to support your skepticism either.Since you said it's easy, how you think one should go about conducting a test to show that WMP is capable of ripping with the same degree of accuracy as EAC?What gives you the impression I am not interested in finding any evidence to support my skepticism? That was a very emotive/defensive thing to say. That is the kind of thing I expect from forums though: emotions over evidence. It is easy to determine if EAC is necessary because you can rip a standard collection of 200 cds with WMP, EAC, and some other program and compare how many times they are consistent. Or maybe use AccurateRip or something like that to see how many times WMP gets it wrong, then see if EAC can make it right or not with the same CD. My experience has taught me that the more paranoid you are, the more complexity you add to the situation, the more likely that things will go wrong. It has also taught me that internet forums are nothing more than the vocal minority, and the programs with small marketshare will always be given as recommendations, while everything from Microsoft will be given harsh criticism, with no evidence to support any of the arguments, and often with made-up garbage, such as how kmixer supposedly eats babies.
