  1. Hello! I have a large collection of music on CD's that I would like to rip and store on my Synology 416 Play NAS, probably using Plex server? To rip the cd's onto the NAS, I was thinking of usinig my Oppo BDP-103 player, as it has ripping fuctionality, but would that be as good as dbPoweramp? Could I use the Oppo BDP-103's drive with dpPoweramp? My Bang&Olfsen system has a 3.5mm anolog input (no digital it's old) so I would need some kind of DAC to connect the NAS. The Oppo BDP-103 is in a diffrent room as the input, so using it as a server is not an option. I have 10TB of space to do this with, so I just want the best audio quality. Any ideas? I'm new to this whole scene, so I'm open to any other methods.
  2. I am ripping my CDs using dbPoweramp with all the various error correction etc. turned on and now am wondering how to interpret what is happening and what it means. Some examples: 1) Brand new CD fresh out of the wrap. Seems to rip fine but at the end most of the tracks report as inaccurate in Accurate Rip. 2) Second brand new CD fresh out the wrap. Found in accurate rip seems to rip fine but then at the end of the rip I get a report that some of the tracks are inaccurate, some are accurate and some are not in accurate rip. When I redo the rip the result is identical including the CRC values. 3) Next brand new CD fresh out of the wrap. Rips fine with no errors and all tracks are accurate according to accurate rip. The first and second CDs are less popular and more obscure music although the last one is not exactly a common disc either. So what can I conclude from this? -The CD reader in my computer is capable of reading a brand new CD accurately (point 3). -Does the CD reader in my computer take some time to warm up or is it variable in its capability? Possible, but as per point 2 I redo the rip and get identical "errors". If this was the case I would have expected it to change from one run to another. -Are the CDs I am buying substandard fresh out of the wrap? I am buying them online from Amazon so I would assume they should be good quality proper CDs. -The numbers from Accurate Rip may not be that accurate. With less common music their stored numbers may be wrong. I am not sure of the details of how they get these values so not sure of the possibility for errors. Anyone able to shed some light on this or give me some suggestions on this "problem" and what I should do?
  3. Not sure if I should just move on, re-rip or stop here? First time I get such a situation. Is either all accurate or all safe, not mixed.
