What is the Best Ripping Software?


Standard Member
I am beginner who is just about to start setting up a FLAC file library for my MP3 player. Could someone advise me on what is currently the best ripping software. Freeware would be nice but I don't mind paying for it as long as it is not too expensive and it is worth the cost. Initially I will be ripping most of my CDs, followed by converting selected LPs.
