I wish I had the means to copy my LPs onto digital files so I could have them side-by-side to compare with the CDs.
That is, if I can figure out how to "rip" these things into my computer in the first place. I've only done that a few times, with Windows Media Player, so I don't have a lot of experience at it. And I'm not sure whether it would be better to use WMP, RealPlayer, or that iTunes thing
Exact Audio Copy, but you probably need to get CDs to use EAC. The CDs exist – I was able to buy them just a couple years ago. Two or three years.
