Exact Audio Copy (EAC) con FLAC (4 a 1024kbps) para ripeos de alta calidad es la nueva elección nauscópica

Ahora que tengo dos discos duros externos de 750GB y 1000GB (en cajas Tacens Vecto de 3,5″ con USB y eSATA) para alimentar el reproductor multimedia Western WD TV HD conectado al televisor de plasma Panasonic TX-P37X10Y y a mi vieja torre (1991) de Alta Fidelidad Denon (las cajas -grandotas ellas- las forré con fibra de vidrio), no tengo excusa para no pasar lo mejor de mi vieja colección de CDs a un formato digital de máxima calidad.

Tras hacer pruebas con Lo Mejor del Soul (1992) con FLAC 5 a 768kbps, FLAC 5 a 1024kbps y FLAC 4 a 1024kbps, he decidido optar por la última opción pues la percusión resalta más, incrementando muy ligeramente el tamaño respecto a la primera opción por defecto.

Exact Audio Copy (EAC) - Opciones de Compresión: FLAC 4 a 1024kbps

    Estoy teniendo problemas para subir los ficheros a Megaupload, pues la carga se para a mitad.
    Ahora estoy probando con el servicio Klurk.
    Mi idea inicial era subirlos (en trozos de 95,7MB) a Megaupload y después crear un contenedor cifrado para JDownloader.
    Nota: en FLAC 5 y 768kbps ocupaba 435MB, mientras que ahora, en FLAC 4 y 1024kbps, 460MB.

    • JuanMG dice:

      Te recomiendo usar FLAC 8 (es el nivel máximo) el cuál ofrece el menor tamaño posible,
      y todo sin pérdidad de calidad, por supuesto.
      La única diferencia entre los niveles es que mientras más alto más tarda en codificar/decodificar.
      Una vez que lo decodificas de devuelve bit por bit el msimo WAV que extrajiste del EAC.

      Y en la parte de “Compresión externa” da exacamente igual que le pongas 128 0 que le pongas 1024,
      no afectará el tamaño ni el bitrate del archivo en lo absoluto. La nivel del FLAC se determina en la línea de comandos.

        Esa será la teoría, pero en mis pruebas he detectado diferencias en la calidad del sonido con las cajas Denon.

        Volveré a hacer pruebas, ahora que las cajas han sido muy mejoradas -también a muchos les cuesta creerlo, sobre todo con las cajitas del RK7.

        Y colgaré unas muestras para que todos puedan verificarlo.

      • JuanMG dice:

        Yo hice mis pruebas y lo confirmé. EN mi caso codifico a FLAC 8,
        y aunque sé que no tienen incidencia alguna, lo dejo en 1024, por las dudas.
        Hay una forma muy fácil de saberlo.
        Haz una extración de un track en nivel 8 a 128 o otro a 1024.
        Comprobarás que el tamaño y calidad serán exactas.

        Se trata de compresión de datos, no de sonido.
        El FLAC comprime sin eliminar información alguna, comprime sin pérdidas, como un RAR.
        Por eso su nombre “Free Lossless Audio Codec”.
        En cuanto a los niveles, haz esta prueba:
        Comprime un en FLAC nivel 5 a 1024 y luego el mismo track en otra carpeta en FLAC 8 a 1024.
        Una vez hecho esto, descomprime ambos FLACs a WAV en en el escritorio u otra carpeta.
        Luego realiza una checksum MD5 (archivos de verificación) verás que ambos serán idénticos.
        Si el código de ambos WAV es el mismo, es que los archivos también son, bit por bit, idénticos.

    Bowers & Wilkins The definitive guide to 24-bit FLAC

    Once you’ve got your 24-bit FLAC files and FLAC player; now it’s time to get the music out to your ears. There are several ways of doing this:

    The simplest is to take an analogue line output from your computer soundcard. This is likely to have a 3.5mm mini-jack plug; we recommend a high quality bespoke cable such as Chord’s iChord for around £30. Although it will give a decent sound, particularly if you have a good quality soundcard, it is not ideal because computers are electrically ‘noisy’ environments, and it is best if at all possible to pipe out the digital signal away from the PC or Mac.
    A good external soundcard like M-Audio’s Transit will always be a better sounding solution. This is a full 24/96 capable card, powered by USB. This provides a high quality S/PDIF optical digital output. It has an electrical coaxial digital output too, but it is always preferable to use the optical to eliminate computer-borne electrical noise. Run a good quality optical lead into a modern DAC such as a Cambridge Audio DAC Magic and you have a proper, high quality 24-bit FLAC playout system, that will give superior sound to almost any CD player. It’s important to note here that Windows users should download the latest ASIO drivers; these provide a ’source direct’ function, ensuring the digital datastream goes direct from the FLAC software player to the USB digital output. Some of the latest DACs, like the Cambridge DAC Magic, also have USB inputs that can be driven directly from computers, but it’s always preferable to isolate the electrically noisy computer from the hi-fi by using an optical digital link.
    Wireless streaming is the third, and for many the preferred option. Logitech’s Squeezebox Touch ,£259,  is one of the most inexpensive and convenient ways of getting full 24-bit FLAC replay at up to 96kHz sampling rate. It comes with bespoke playback software that lets your computer control it via your home wireless network, giving an iTunes-style user interface. Generally, these work very well and are an excellent way of giving multiform functionality. Although it has built-in line level analogue outputs which are ideal for use in a second system, again audiophiles should use its digital output into a hi-fi DAC, such as the aforementioned Cambridge Audio DAC Magic.

    Gran artículo!

    Creo que ha llegado la hora de profundizar sobre este soporte, en especial de qué programas se han de utilizar para pasar a FLAC las imágenes de los discos que poco a poco se irán compartiendo.
    También, qué hard es necesario para hacerlo sin pasar por analógico.

    Exact Audio Copy V1.0 beta 2 (including CDRDAO and Flac packages) last changed on 24.05.11

    I have worked very hard the last 6 month to present you an updated version of EAC, and here it finally comes. It fixes many problems (e.g. saving WAVs in the audio editor and WMA compression should be working again), but also brings you a renewed user interface and an improved metadata editing. One thing I am especially proud of is the autocomplete for the artist and for the composer field. New tag fields like lyrics are also included. The replacers (like %s) are exchanged against some more meaningfull replacers (like %source%). A list for the compression command line replacers can be found in the FAQ.

    A new professional metadata provider plugin from Get Digital Data is also added, which provides automatically cover images and more metadata information. You can test 10 lookups before purchasing a lifetime license for only $7.99 if you like it. Of course the old freedb plugin can still be used and now includes basic lyrics support. I still plan to open the freedb plugin as open source, so that the community can extend and correct that plugin – or even create new ones for other metadata services. New is also support for a different kind of plugin, which is able to analyse the extraction data and process it somehow, a new plugin for that will emerge soon…

    Have fun!

    Exact Audio Copy V1.0 beta 3

    Descarga más cómoda en: fileforum Exact-Audio-Copy/

    What’s new in version 1.0 beta 3
    ==============================

    Added the CTDB (CUETools Database), which can test complete CD rips against an online checksum (like AccurateRip, but CD based) and submits error correction data which can be used by others on defective CDs with an external application.
    – Fixed a problem with track duration in e.g. filename creation for the last track of a CD
    – Using UNC paths will now work (again)
    – Several database issues (e.g. max database size was 256 MB)
    – Translations for the metadata plugins
    – Sometimes the metadata provider plugins were not loaded
    – In some cases the options window of the metadata plugins could not be opened
    – Options of the freedb metadata plugin are not stored over EAC sessions (in some cases)
    LAME DLL produces defective, stuttering MP3s (bug exists since 1.0 beta 1!). By the way, it seems that only LAME.DLL (VC6 compiled) is compatible with EAC…
    – Codec compression crashes/hangs EAC in some extraction modes when “Use multiple external compressors” is used
    – CD Autostart deactivation should work now
    – Fixed some writing to the wrong registry key
    – Removed “No use of null samples for CRC calculations” (null samples are now always used for CRC)
    – EAC does not activate Windows 7 system window shadows anymore
    – Some drives were only extracting very slow, this should be fixed now (but in some rare cases, some drives might have started caching now)
    – The possible command line parameters replacement strings are now listed in the appropriate tooltip
    – Covers can be named freely using (nearly) the same replacement strings (also listed in the tooltip)
    – If no email address was specified, the information dialog now offers to open the appropriate options page
    – The freedb and GD3 plugins are now translated. The language used is the one selected in EACs options
    – The beeping when the compression queue gets empty is only issued when the extraction has finished (thus only once per CD)
    – Fixed a crash when writing ID3 tags with lyrics with a length greater than a few kb
    – Fixed a crash when using CDs with 99 tracks (or around that limit)
    – The dialog asking whether files should be overwritten is now displayed at the very beginning of the extraction and not at the time when a file would actually be overwritten.
    – The overwrite information dialog is now also shown when overwriting a file using a commandline compressor (fixed bug)
    – CD-Text extraction is nearly completly rewritten, can now also extract composer
    – The taskbar icon will now show the status (green/red) until all status windows are closed
    – The final tracknumber of the last CD are stored over EAC sessions, so it is possible to continue a CD tracknumbering from a previous run of EAC
    – There are new placeholders for track number formatting in the command line parameters (%tracknr1%,%tracknr2% and %tracknr3%, the number is the minimum number of digits used)
    – The EAC installer will now abort installation on Windows 2000 or previous versions (as they are not supported anymore anyway)
    – Profiles from beta 1 and beta 2 can be loaded with this version (beta 2 could not load beta 1 profiles)
