Commonly asked questions about Rob’s CD Ripper:

Why should I use Rob’s CD Ripper for iTunes • Import and Convert Audio CDs?

Rob’s CD Ripper for iTunes saves a lot of time ripping your music collection into two audio formats in one step. You can have one high quality lossless file for archiving and one smaller,  lower bit-rate file for play back. Compressed audio formats save disk space and allow you to store more files on your hard drive. Converting lossless files to other formats will also process much faster than re-ripping from CDs.
