Best Drive for CD ripping

Postby Albinoni on Fri Jan 28, 2005 9:55 am

Whats the best DVD/CD-ROM drive for ripping audio CD's. I'm also a member of another couple of forums called "CDR-Info" and "CDR-Labs", and have heard mixed opinion on different drives. I heard that the best drives for ripping were Liteon, Asus and Plextor, but overall Liteon came out on tops for audio cd ripping due to its fast ripping speed. Then some said that Asus drives were the best for ripping. Also is it true that Asus optical drives are very quiet.

I recommend a Lite-On because they're cheap and fast but not quiet.
BTW...Lite-On drives can defeat most CD protection and you can use KProbe to check for errors on CD-R.

whatver drive you get just make sure it can do audio caching and can do an accurate stream

also for ripping id recommend exact audio copy:

Fractal Design Define R5 White Window Case
Corsair RM1000 Power Supply
MSI X99A XPower AC USB 3.1 Motherboard
Intel i7-5930K CPU @ 4.8GHz
Corsair H100i GTX 240mm CPU Cooler
Mushkin Blackline 4x8GB DDR4 2400 Memory
Asus 980Ti Strix OC

Actually it would be preferable if the drive did not cache audio- caching just makes it harder to confirm proper reading. EAC is my choice for CD-ripping too. :D

the folks at http://www.ubernet.org/ recommend the Plextor PlexWriter Premium http://www.plextor.com/english/products/Premium.html
now these guys take music ripping so seriously I doubt they may be wrong.
