I prefer VidCoder Beta. It's just a different GUI for Handbrake CLI. The advantage for me is that it also lets me limit the file size. I'm pretty sure the latest beta also allows burning-in of...

dBpoweramp gets my vote.

Sure, it costs $38 the last time I checked, but it does everything I need, and it's faster than EAC. They are also actively developing a Mac version, which I think their...

Vinyl takes a lot of investment and setup if you really want top notch sound quality. The table I have (Sony PS-X5) is supposed to be pretty good. But my cart (Audio Technica AT95E) and preamp...

Thanks guys. These were really the answers I was after. Seems that 720p is probably a better way for me to go if I am concerned with conserving disk space. I guess if 1080p quality really matters...

So what do folks agree on here as far as resolution? Better to rip at 720p or 1080p if I want to keep my rips down below ~8GB?

I'm just using DVDFab for transcoding which seems to do 'good...

I've always heard that tube amps sound richer and fuller. If you have the money, why not give it a shot and see how you like it?

Vinyl is fun, but it's not better than a CD.

A CD is much easier to take care of. You never have to worry about it being full of dust. You don't have to worry about it warping. You never have...

Anyone here prefer 720p rips over 1080p rips? To my eyes, 720p looks very good, and the other benefit is that it's a much smaller file size than a 1080p rip. I'm only watching on a 42" TV from ~6ft...

I can get a CD for less money, that sounds better than a record, and make my own lossy versions.

I have a turntable, but I only bought it because my parents have a lot of vinyl packed away, and I got my table for $10 at a garage sale, only needing a new stylus. It is a Sony PS-X5 which I guess...

Ogg Vorbis vs. iTunes Plus AAC

Which is the better codec in terms of size vs. quality at 192kbps? I am making backups of my CD's as FLAC and then using either Vorbis or AAC at 192kbps to put on my Sansa Clip Zip rockboxed. ...

I think high-resolution audio is irrelevant for listening. For listening, I don't see any reason to go higher than 16/48. For mastering, that is where I could see using something like 24/176.4 or...

If you play em on a BD player, just make a BD9 @ 1080p and put that on a DVD with Imgburn. It'll play on a BD player, all you need is a DVD9 to burn it to, and it still looks and sounds good. You...

I only have internet as I'm on the computer, asleep or outside 99% of the time when I'm not at work. If I'm inside and not asleep or on the computer, I can put on a movie.

I thought the 2009 remasters were just entirely too loud. I wonder how hefty a price tag this will carry. Will definitely stick to my Capitol LPs and 1987 CDs.

And what exactly is different...
