Rediscovering Music

Posted: December 17, 2017 in Audio

Our music collection is very variable in quality. A variety of ripping software, quality settings and knowledge has led to a lot of differences between early rips and later ones. I’m finding this out the hard way when I play stuff back in the car!

This is compounded by later rips being done to FLAC and then to mp3. Our Sonos is also pointing at the mp3s rather than the FLACs which does seem to be a bit silly.

The default ripper in the last few years has been Vortexbox, but the hardware that it runs on is old and will very soon probably stop getting updates. I’ll need to figure something out.
