Understood, but I'll take my chances. Even though hard drives are relatively cheap, I plan to have a terabyte or so of music when I'm done. Add another terabyte for backup and 2 more for another format with backup and it will add up. I also plan to sell my CDs at the local used shop before they beco...

It may be me who is confused :shock: , but isn't AAC a lossy format? My goal is the highest quality digital data to feed the USB DAC in my stereo system so anything with a loss is not an option. If this correct, I see no reason to rip and store 2 lossless formats, FLAC which iTunes won't play and Ap...

Thanks for the input Dave, but since I have chosen iTunes on a Mac that does not directly support FLAC I don't see a way to easily implement it. Besides, I can't imagine Apple going under at this point and losing support for the format.


Are you really as cheerful as your picture suggests :>)

You are getting valid Apple Lossless files that open and play in iTunes? yes, but I have to go into the directory where they are stored to play them. All the metadata is there and correct? How can I determine this? Hey, I believe I have solved the problem. I had chosen Apple lossless in each aplica...

OK, I've tried ripping wav and apple lossless with both MAX and iTunes on a few songs and compared. It all sounds the same to me and my system has pretty good resolution. Given that, I would prefer to use Apple lossless via MAX since even though it takes longer has better error correction/detection,...

it's hard for me to believe that decoding on the fly could affect the audio quality on a modern machine where speed isn't much of an issue. I would be curious to know more about this! Me too. I am going to rip the same songs using Max and several formats and itunes ripper using the same somgs and f...

could you elaborate on why you would like to rip everything to the wave format? I have agonized over this for quite awhile. I bought a Mac mini to be the heart of a hard drive based server. I chose this because of the extremely cool interface with remote http://www.apple.com/imac/frontrow.html and ...

wow, prompt response

Thanks for the prompt response. Excuse my ignorance but I am just now beginning to explore this facet of computers using a USB DAC for playback so I don't completely understand your response. 1) Due to an oversight on my part, WAVE format files cannot be added to iTunes in Max 0.5.6. I've fixed the ...

? info be imported to iTunes library when ripping WAV ?

I want to save everything as wave files. When I use MAX it puts the songs into my iTunes folders just like iTunes does when I use it to rip, but nothing shows up in my library. That is worthless to me as the reason I went with iTunes was the library interface, Is there any way to rip with MAX and ha...
