WMA is inferior to MP3 in terms of sound quality.

That, I agree with you.

Back on EAC, I know that it supports MP3 but... I don't see WHY it should be used to rip CDs to MP3s. Any ripper should do fine for that. Lossless wise, although even if I think it's overrated, I think it's almost necessary (or any ripper that can do multiple pass and check for errors and gives a report (log) for exemple dBPowerAmp CD Ripper).

For broken CDs with EAC... I haven't had luck with it AT ALL. I have a CD single here that have 2 tracks skip and EAC isn't able to recover it at all. And, if you check the CD itself, it isn't THAT scratched.

Anyway, for any newbie to ripping, I wouldn't suggest EAC for its complexity. CDex has everything off the bat and will suffice to almost everybody.

Simple question: Why not?!? EAC is just a ripper like any other ripper.

For a greenhorn, it's unnecessarily complex. The OP is a self-proclaimed greenhorn.

When I had no experience, I did use it briefly and it worked fine on mp3s. But I found it confusing at the time. There are a lot of config choices.

Now that I have a lot of experience, I imagine I could run it quickly with no issues. But it would not be my first recommendation for a newbie who wants to learn to rip.

I looked at EAC, but didn't really need it because my CDs are virtually all scratch free.

As I recall, it is more complex to configure as well.
It's definitely the best tool when your CDs are somewhat ****ed up.
I was able to save quite some of my very old ones and I don't see the point in installing multiple tools for the same task when one is obviously superior.
But with perfect CDs, there is no difference actually, that's right.
That has been my experience as well. EAC is what I use too.

Hmmm...
Maybe I'm just too familiar with puters for too long then...

They are both lossy formats and it will depend on the player and the users ears which is better. If you want sound quality, go .wav - for the price of files that are 10 to 30 times larger than e.g. .mp3.

Most, but not all. Although since the OP is inexperienced in this area, WMP could be an easy option to figure out......and it can rip to MP3 if you set it to do so in the options (not the superior LAME version however).

As an experienced user in these matters, I wouldn't rip with WMP, but it might be the answer for the OP.
