I have recently began to use EAC to rip all my cds without quality loss after compressing with Monkey's audio. When it is done ripping it lists the quality of the tracks I ripped. It usually gives a number between 98.5% and 100% despite not reporting any errors. Am I getting perfect copies? I am also looking for a sound card recommendation. I want something with a high quality headphone output to drive my Grado SR-80s. I also want something that can pass a digital signal(PCM, DD and DTS) to my main 5.1 system for music, movies and games. I probably won't be using PC speakers at all unless I can get my 2 year old ATP3s fixed.
