There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default The best method for best quality

If you wan't a high quality mp3 files (very near to original CD quality) with a smallest bitrate, the best choice is Lame with --r3mix preset.

If you wan't best possible copy of your CD (without any pops or skips), the best ripper is EAC.

The best thing is that you can configure EAC to use Lame as a mp3 codec. It can rip CDs with a full speed and after finishing a track, the wav is put in a queue. MP3 compression is done simultaneously while you rip the CD, without any need to wait the codec to finish the compression.

EAC + Lame combination is very easy to use (after first configuring the EAC), and the most important, it will give the best quality for you. EAC and Lame are both 100% free for you.

More info and downloads from

I didn't post this because I wanted to advertisment my favourite ripper and codec. I posted this because too many users don't know that they could easily improve the quality of their mp3 files, but they just don't know that. They thought that "anyripper" with "anycodec" at 192kbps is enough to give CD quality mp3, but it is far from it.

Default Grabbing & Resampling

If I want to rip songs from a CD, i use Audiograbber, and grab it as WAVE files 44,1KHZ,16Bit,Stereo (PCM). I cut away silence from the songs (leaving 0.1 seconds)

I don't use the encoder included in Audiograbber because i don't like the quality

Then, for encoding .mp3 files, i use SCMPX (a bit unknown player/encoder/decoder tool), that has the advantage that i can also batch encode....

I use following Settings to encode:

layer 3, 256 kbit/s, Stereo

the result is a file which sounds 99,9% like the original.. This may be a bit complicated, but works best for me

Default More info here

Have a look at this thread for some more info on ripping music from CD to mp3 for sharing:

(As for lame, I find --alt-preset standard to be better than --r3mix in the latest versions, and I think this is the current consensus of those who have compared them for speed and quality. I have compared them using good equipment and good ears, and this is my conclusion.

I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to research the arguments themselves, or better yet perform some listening tests and speed tests.

As for lame vs other encoders, lame is easily the best you will get without pirating some high-end encoder - it's the best I have heard anyway.)

Thumbs up

Hello! I'm new to all this stuff, and have found myself spending HOURS looking for and downloading all kinds of cool stuff...including some obscure things from my youth which I thought lost

On the subject at hand, how well does iTunes stack up against the others mentioned for converting cds to mp3's? There seems to be a fair amount of customization available for those who want it. I've converted a few cds using the default settings, and I notice no really discernable differences in quality over anything I have downloaded using Limewire.

It was really a simple matter to then transfer the file to my sharing folder. Pretty slick, if ya ask me

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Default Re: The best method for best quality

I very much dislike when people recommend --r3mix as the _best_. In reality, a lot of the website (along with the lame switch) is outdated. The author doesn't update the site anymore.

More on this discussion here -

Recommended switches -

Tools -

These are the command line options, for the lame binary, I use in EAC... (user defined):

--alt-preset standard --id3v2-only --pad-id3v2 --tt "%t" --ta "%a" --tl "%g" --tn "%n" %s %d

Default ogg vorbis encoding

You couls also try to encode your music in to the ogg vorbis format. The files will then have the extension *.ogg.

Ogg Vorbis is better than the mp3-format. There are three reasons for this:

Convinient file size.
Better sound quality.
Ogg Vorbis is free. The source code is free, therefore it is difficult to stop Ogg Vorbis or implement licens fees.
