I built myself an inexpensive computer as a server to do almost nothing other than to hold my music. I use a USB cable to run the music from this server to my external dac. Also, I use Jriver as my interface.

I have been ripping cds to the SSD in the computer via the control options in Jriver.

My question is at what speed does everyone rip their cd's into their server ? Do you let your interface decide or do you present a speed say at 1:1x or 25X ?
Next does anyone also use a ripping software that rides in front of or over Jriver or which ever interface you have. such as exact audio copy or Db Poweramp ?

Thanks

Thank You Leecreek, I use wav as well. I understand flac is acceptable but with the new cheaper hard drives, saving as a wav makes sense. I will give EAC a try.

I know this is a bit of a necropost, but the computer nerd in my just had to reply. with modern optical drives ripping at full speed isn't a problem like it was in the past. Back in the day you could introduce skipping, or other digital artifacting, but 25x speeds are ANCIENT technology at this point, and ripping at whatever speeds the system maxes out at is perfectly fine. with the memory buffers and other advances in tech over the last 30+ years I wouldn't hesitate to rip at 16x or above.... I usually do 16x just as a happy medium placebo effect, even though my scans have shown no degradation at a full 25x rip on my drive with Audacity

EAC does several levels of verification. I just let it do whatever the drive will do. If it's having issues, EAC will automatically slow things down and reread as needed.
