"sounds good to me"

October 29, 2016  |  By usaroofingmike

 |  Version: CDex 1.75

Pros

I can't tell the difference between the CD and the mp3 with my headphones on - old version and the 2016 latest version (1.81).
CDex has the choice of about ten different codecs(?) including FLAC.
Love the auto-fetch of the CD titles via the internet, but I'm under the impression most rippers can do that.

Cons

I have two computers, both similar hardware/software, but one can apparently ramp up the speed of the CD player and rips the CD in about 5 minutes. The other computer takes about 30 minutes for the same CD.

Summary

Free, quick, intuitive and no extra software tries to sneak on my computers.
Instead of donating, CDex gets this review from me. Thanks software guys!

"Sadly, it's not the best anymore"

 |  Version: CDex 1.75

Pros

Easy to use with a wide variety of options.
Access to multiple on-line CD databases.
Works really quickly.
Takes a minute amount of HD space.
Although some may call it dated, the interface is still the same with the familiar layout. At least the software authors haven't [yet] fallen for the b/s metro interface bandwagon.

Cons

Ripping CDs to mp3 produces poor results. Used 192Kbps/Stereo/16bit, but the sound quality resembled that of a cheap home cassette recorder. Other users may not have such a problem, and it may not affect ripping to other formats (which I haven't done).
Installation needs care as the download is infested with crapware (term does not apply to the Opera browser). Users are strongly recommended to use a 'custom' install and deselect the extra software.

Summary

Despite the familiar easy to use interface, this does not perform as well as it once did. The poor sound quality from ripped CDs means I cannot recommend this. A shame really because I used to use it on other much older systems and was then delighted with its performance.
