RE: Ripping with dBpoweramp

I don't understand your reference to 24 or 32 bit. FLAC ripping allows you to specify the the amount of lossless compression applied. Level 5 is the recommended one in DBpower amp. Some people feel that uncompressed is preferable but I have not been able to establish this myself and believe that this preference may not be a FLAC attribute per se but is related to the entire playback chain that is in use. I certainly cannot hear any degradation at level 5 compared to the silver disc original using a dCS/Esoteric transport. Always willing to be persuaded otherwise.

I trust that you use dbpoweramp with PerfectTunes as this provides excellent metadata even if it does require finessing on occasion.
