Best CD Ripper

Why use VBR MP3s? Well unlike regular lower bit-rate codecs, LAME can use VBR to provides the best Sound Quality to space ratio, and WinLAME makes the process as easy as 1 2 3. I use WinLame to rip CDs and convert them into VBR MP3s on the fly.

cd-158501_1280Lame is a Codec, and WinLAME is a GUI for that codec. It’s a superior codec than most and best of all it’s completely FREE. You can grab the latest version over at http://winlame.sourceforge.net/ Give it a spin, it’s open source and contains NO SPYWARE or Adware.
I ♥ winLAME, and I think you will too. It’s way better than using Windows Media Player, but easier than Exact Audio Copy.
