Program has many good features, but jumping through hoops to get pre-sales support (like having to sign up for a forum) and they have other user act like complete know-it-all a-holes doesn't really convince me to purchase the program in spite of doing what I would like to accomplish. Also, some feature documentation is ridiculously poor or absent, which is why I needed the pre-sales support to answer the question. Would have likely purchased it if it wasn't for the poor support, rude community and poor or absent documentation. I ended up purchasing multiple programs to accomplish what DMC would have done strictly on principle.

I like this program but it is much too expensive. I incidentally use such tools and then there are much free alternatives.

Checks several metadata suppliers at once, you can preview and mix the info at will to get it right before ripping, has accurate rip function, lots of options, you can even choose the number of CPU cores to use. Best CD ripper right now (the converter is a nice add-on to me). The GUI smells a bit like PC (where it originally came from), but is above the (few) competitors and is getting better in newer versions. Version 16 is a paid upgrade (50% for earlier customers). No-brainer for audio high-enders!

The best tool available for ripping CDs (includes accurip) and for converting audio from one format to another. This has Finally, after many years, been made available for the Mac with thanks to Spoon, the man behind the scenes for more years than I can remember. IMHO - this is the finest product on the market and will likely remain so. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If your audio is important to you, thesis an indispensable tool.

If you're serious about Audio CD Ripping this is the best yet on Mac. Ultra Secure mode, Accurate Rip Database support, completed with a decent log file. I used XLD before and yes, it's good, but this one is better. Actually, this is a suite and the CD ripper is a part of it. It also comes with a Batch Converter and a Music Converter. However I haven't used those yet, so my rating is purely about the ripper, YMMV. BTW the app has arrived at version 15.1 and functionality is now the same as the Windows version. Thank you devs for bringing dBpoweramp to the Mac!
