    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

    I rip to file type using exact audio copy. File type is wav.

    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 have mine in FLAC from my older server using EAC. Given the cheap storage prices now, I will gradually re-rip to WAV.
