I have recently built a second system for music duties which consists of a Rotel1062 amp, totem dreamcatcher speakers and a RME9632 soundcard. I have 4x250gb samsung spinpoints in raid so space isn't really a concern. What is the best way to transfer my cds to my HD? Also whats the best player to use? I like iTunes (use it on my laptop) but am happy to use whatever. I'm not sure if its the player that makes much difference to the sound quality or just what codec is used. From looking around it would appear lossless isn't any lower quality than straight .wav as no information is lost, whats the apple ELAC like? I know FLAC is popular also... Thanks for your help in advance. Nick.
