Re: Best File Formats

^what they said

just wanted to add, when you rip with EAC use secure mode and be sure to check the error reports after you rip each disc. If you want your copies to be absolutely 100% perfect you have to set your read and write offsets before you start (see here). Since you want to back up your entire collection the best possible way, this is worth the one-time extra effort. Without correct offsets it will still be 99% accurate and better than nero and the rest. You also might want to keep two backups and protect from corrupted data by recopying and running a test on the FLAC files every two or three years. Taiyo Yuden discs are considered the most reliable media on earth right now.
