Not sure if this is the correct forum, but what the heck... Also not sure if "ripping" is the right term for converting CD's to MP3's, but what the heck... I'd like to convert some CD's into MP3 for playback on the boat. I'm not planning on posting any copyrighted material on the web, and these are all CD's I have legally procured. Couple Questions: At 160k bitrate, how many minutes of music can I get on a CD ? I'd like the best possible sound. Where can I get the best conversion software ? Thanks !
