I have been ripping all of my CD's on an old PC it is a DVD drive but

with EAC it usually reports back 100 to 99% rips. Should I be using something more up to date to get the best quality rips?

    I would go back and start ripping everything again if "bit perfect" matters that much.

    Audio ripping hasn't improved at all since the early 2000s. Pretty much any dvd drive will rip audio perfect if you have the correct settings. EAC has some settings that aren't set by default. It will slow it down big time, but it will guarantee perfect rips (as long as the disc isn't flawed).

    If you want, this website has a guide on making truly perfect rips with EAC.

    Have any error correction controls on ? It will take longer to rip them with them on, but it will give you a better recording.

    Bit perfect does matter. I use DB Poweramp. It's not free, but it's inexpensive.

    For some reason I ripped a bunch of CDs this week, even though they are on my Murfie account...
    Anyway, I use Windows Media player and under settings I set it to .WAV. They have FLAC and other stuff in there but I feel CDs should only be ripped at .WAV.

    Why only WAV?

    Because some claim WAV produces the best recording due mostly to it's uncompressed file. Where as other formats compress first, then uncompress, which saves space too over WAV. Personally I've been hard pressed to tell the difference much at all.

    I wonder how large (file size) is an album in 192/24 WAV?

    I RIP CDs at their native settings.
    16bit/44.1kHz and Wav.
    I believe this is what a CD produces, so it make sense to copy them at that.

    It does matter what level of gear you do your listening on as well. So okay, rip away 16 bit/44.1 Hz all you like. I bump mine all up to 48000Hz and am loving the results. Have I A-B'd it with several cd's?? You bet I have. Carry on, and space on my drives is not an issue. All about the end result.
