Default What Are Your DBpoweramp Settings?

I just downloaded DBpoweramp for my Mac to RIP CD's. Just tried ripping the MQA CD's I just purchased and getting errors on a couple of the tracks.

I'm using the "Ripping Method" settings "Secure (Recover Errors)" When I change to "Burst (Fastest Ripping, No Error Recovery)" all is good.

The CD's themselves appear to be perfect. No scratches or scuffs.

Paul-

While I am not an expert, I set the recovery errors to 160 with a max time of 20 minutes.
If there are more, I'm not interested in the rip. Sometimes, using a different CD ROM will rip better. I use a 2008 MacPro with a newly installed DVD as well as a portable usb plug as a back up. Also, cleaning the CD with a bit of Windex can help.

My rips are CD's, 44.1 many borrowed from public libraries and some are messy. Always listen. A few errors may not be noticeable.

Thanks John!!

I replaced the USB cable and all is good.

I ripped a CD using dbpoweramp twice, one with a single fast pass and a second using multiple passes. If there was a difference I could not tell them apart. I now go with lossless Level 1, unless there is a major issue.
