Man I ripped about 2500 CDs 5-6 years ago. I did it all with EAC (for better reading support) direct to flac, then and popped covers in with mp3tag and used foobar to create a replay gain profile. Once it was done, I bought a second drive and cloned it so HDD failure wouldn't result in having to do it all again. It was largely a manual process although you don't have to 100% babysit it. You can pop in a cd and go do something and come back 15 mins later and swap disks, process and move on. I love DB Poweramp, I use it for batch conversions. But I would want to rip with EAC somehow to make sure you get the secure read from the disk.
Good luck on your project.
