"Just Adware"

January 24, 2016

2016-01-24 14:30:03

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.1

Pros

Who knows? Was never able to run it. Try Audacity instead.

Cons

Won't download - the webpages all are full of crap.

Summary

Won't download - all pages have just links to adware, and after 20 minutes gave up. I think they also have no version for Mac, so forget it.

"Listen to the naysayers"

March 02, 2014  |  By ThePreacherTheTeacher

2014-03-02 06:00:29  |  By ThePreacherTheTeacher

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

Pros

none whatsover

Cons

Bloatware !!!

Summary

Regardless of the worth of EAC, This download is full of junkware. AVOID!!

For ripping CD, iTunes and Windoes Media Player with error correction turned on will do just as well for ripping accuracy. Don't listen to the pointy-headed audiophiles!. If you like, get accuraterip and check you rips that way. YOU will find no problems

April 24, 2013  |  By LobertRee

2013-04-24 13:30:30  |  By LobertRee

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

Pros

It's free.

Cons

1) resets your search engine from google to bing
2) loads extra crap on your system that's not needed and not wanted
3) asks you to pay for a subscription to download cd info from database, haha

Summary

This program is not even worth the price ($0.00)!!!

"A top quality, bare-bones product."

March 24, 2013  |  By frankb10

2013-03-24 06:41:23  |  By frankb10

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

Pros

You probably won't find a superior audio file manaqer. I have not fully put this to the test, but judging from the feature set, reviews by experts, and my own limited use to date, I believe this provisionally.

Cons

Out of the box, this product won't provide now standard capabilities like seamless access to meta-data driven resources on the web. If you're willing to work around this, no problem, but EAC may not be best for those looking for ease-of-use. Look for later versions to plug these holes.

Summary

Great for dealing with challenging source files, not optimal for the faint-of-heart.

"Has hardly changed since it's introduction."

December 31, 2012  |  By pixelriffic

2012-12-31 15:27:22  |  By pixelriffic

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

Pros

It's simple, and it's free

Cons

Crude and dated interface.

Summary

I wanted to experiment with some lossless audio from my CDs. I used this app years ago, when it was only one of a couple of options. Unfortunately, it's barely changed. Encoding into some formats, such as FLAC, require calling external software. App takes some setup before it can pull track info.

Frankly, you be better off with a number of other apps out there, even the Apple and Windows native solutionns are so much better.

 |  Version: Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3

Pros

Somewhat complicated to use but if you need it, you can get around that.

Cons

Overly complex.

Summary

I used it and I will continue using it. That more than I can say for some of the apps one downloads.
