When it comes to ripping cd's I have some question's. Ok so I mostly use EAC to do my rips to flac then use media hub to convert to alac to put in my itunes. I know I could rip directly to alac but then I couldn't play them in flac without converting. ( just stating for those that will tell me to skip). So my question is what setting should I use to get the most accurate and best sounding files? I've heard that unless the original file is 24bit that taking it from 16bit to 24bit is bad. Also when it comes to 44,48,or 96khz does that matter much? Thank you for your replies.
