Cdparanoia vs Cdda2wav
Anyone have any opinions on which is better for ripping a CD to wav?

In Grip im currently using the most recent apt repository version of Cdparanoia (not the one that comes with Grip, dunno if there is a difference) and it is working great, just I guess wondering if I may be missing out on something better ;D

Thanks guys!

They are pretty much functionally the same.

Cdparanoia may be better if your discs are scratched/dirty/ or otherwise difficult to read:


In addition to simple reading, cdparanoia adds extra-robust data verification, synchronization, error handling and scratch reconstruction capability.
Cdda2wav has built-in cddb support (ie: freecddb). As Grip covers this for you, it may be important only if you are running directly from the CLI.
