I'm after an iAudio Cowon X5. Apart from OGG it does FLAC. Indeed I
suggest you ripping to FLAC. As a lossless algorithm you keep
CD-quality and later you can reencode to OGG or MP3 if needed without
the same loss of quality you get from encoding from a loosy to a loosy

I am planning doing the same, ripping all my CD collection, and I
think I'll prefer FLAC to high-bitrate MP3. Anyway for pop music
stereo 192Kbps MP3 should be more than OK.

As a ripper, jack which uses cdparanoia and supports cddb is lovely
and very lightweight as a console app.

Cordially, Ismael
