I use dbPowerAmp as the converter since it is the best
I convert to mp3 (Lame Averate Bit Rate 40)
You might be able to further deduce the bit rate by going to aa format
I can’t see why you would want to concatenate the chapters. It serves no purpose but adds another process to your audio and extra work for you. Why put it inside a m4a or mp4 container? That again serves no purpose and limits what you can play it on.

You can’t continue to process lossy files without effecting their quality. If you are lucky, you only suffer a loss of fidelity, if not you can produce artifacts. Most will render your audio unusable since they are very loud and can hurt your ears and or blow out your speakers. For that reason I convert to mp3 since most devices play them.

For instance, I cut a ape file into tracks. They sounded perfect. Then I converted them to mp3s. The audios were riddled with horrible artifacts. Then I tried converting the ape file to an mp3 file then cut that into tracks and the audio was fine. The thing is, had I kept the ape tracks and deleted the original one I would never have been able to reduce the bit rate. You can’t always hear if you have ruined an audio file until you try to peocess it again. I suggect doing as little as possible to any audio file.

It's actually really great!

The CD ripper is accurate, it has a great and fast encoder, and has a great TAG editor.

Worth your dollars.



Oct 29, 2015 Version: R15.3 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 10/10



Although R15 is 64bits native, the codecs are not (all of them) working for both 32/64bits. From all the supplementary codecs (that are not included in the installation pack) I'm most impressed by the mp3 Helix codec (about 4x faster than Lame), and unfortunately this one is not supported by x64 systems... Maybe Spoon (Da Man) will work around this issue; till than I suggest you stick to R14.4.


Feb 24, 2014 Version: R15 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 7/10 Overall: 7/10



I purchased this several months ago and am very happy with it. Some of tools like the converter or cd burner can be found elsewhere but where this really shines is the CD ripper. There is nothing as secure other than Exact Audio Copy and still this is much faster. If you have a modern dvd/cd drive like most people the tool might not seem to be as useful. I can rip most CDs with freac or foobar2000 just fine but I find this is faster and I just feel better knowing that it's an exact copy even if I'm getting exact copies with other tools. For me there are no problems with the audio no matter what I encode it in unless there is a problem with the disc itself. The cd data lookup is also better than any program out there.

One thing I noticed is on their website they act like they are a small company with several people. I think this is pretty common way of trying to sell your product online. I don't have any proof really other than a hunch but I suspect it's probably a one man operation. That's fine it's a great product and I certainly got and getting my moneys worth with it.

Commercial crap - who cares anyway? There are tons of good and FREE converters which do the same job. Don't bother paying money for this one!
