    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    LOL, no, I seldom go to Hydrogen much less registered there. I'm more from the old school audiophile side of things. For me the minimum quality for audio is 16/44.1 weather wav, flac, ape, or aiff. The reason I'm interested in flac is that its the native, and most efficient format for the Slim Devices SqueezeBox.

    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    This is the link to the forum where the claim about bit perfect rips in iTunes is made. http://www6.head-fi.org/forums/showthread....nes+bit+perfect From the level of discussion I suspect that they are wrong and you are right ffooky. Oh well, ignorance is bliss. My reluctance to join yet another audio forum will insure their bliss, unless you decide to burst their bubble and set them straight.

    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    I just read this statement on another forum. " It appears that iTunes IS bit perfect if you disable a few of their presets and rip WAV or AIFF." If this is true, would it be possible to take the resulting file and transcode it to FLAC using TT7 or any other (read free) transcoding app? Thanks for humoring my obsessive/compulsive tendencies regarding this.

    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    Thanks for setting my mind at ease about getting good rips. Now you've given me something else to obsess about, offset correction. In my previous example, if I'm using a MacMini with a built in drive do I have to be concerned about offset correction? It it already taken into account? Is offset correction only a factor when using external optical drives?

    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    This is exactly the type of discussion that I'd hope would occur. Let me see if I've got this straight with a hypothetical example. Say that I use a MacMini with xACT set the way you have outlined, util tab with extraction, will I then get rips that are bit perfect? Or close to bit perfect? Will MAX do this? (I've heard MAX is easier to use) If not bit perfect, would it be anything to worry about as long as atom and edge are ok?

    Thanks for the heads up. As I am a casual user, when you start to talk about Linux and writing code my eyes kind of glaze over and I nod my head with out really understanding. Hopefully someone will rescue us from the sentence of an MS solution to this problem thats easy enough to use for the average/casual user.

    Thanks for the bad news. I was afraid of that. You'd think that Apple of some other software outfit would have resolved this by now. Very disappointing to say the least. I hate having to even consider using an MS product but it looks like I have no other option.

    Bit Perfect Flac Rips With Tt7

    I want to know if TT7 ensures bit perfect FLAC files on my harddrive the same way that Exact Audio Copy, EAC, does for XP. EAC will go back and read a section of a disc it has a problem with, ie scratch, smudge, dust, over and over again until it is confident that a bit perfect file is produced. Or, as with most OSX FLAC encoders, does it just use error correction when it encounters a problem. Also is there a provision to have a sliding scale for speed of a rip vs size of compression as EAC does for FLAC encoding..TIA
