How to Rip FLAC With EAC


If you want to rip your music CDs to your computer without losing any audio quality like you would with an MP3, then you can rip with FLAC. The Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is the de facto standard for lossless audio. Lossless audio means that no frequencies are compressed or cut off, like they are with MP3 or WMA, compared to the original audio source. Exact Audio Copy (EAC) is preferred by audiophiles online as a disc ripping tool due to its flexibility and accuracy.

  • Open Exact Audio Copy. Insert an audio disc into your drive.

  • Click "EAC," then "Compression Options." Click the "External" tab and then tick "Use external program for compression."

  • Click the first drop-down menu and select "User Defined Encoder." Set the extension to ".flac" (without quotes). Click "Browse" and navigate to your FLAC codec.

  • Ensure that "Delete WAV" is checked and that "Use CRC," "Add ID3" and "Check for external..." are all deselected. Click "High Quality." Click "OK."

  • Click the "Rip" button to begin ripping, in EAC, to FLAC.
