Editors' reviewThis utility offers a good set of tools for handling basic audio chores. Lavavo CD Ripper converts CD tracks into seven audio formats, including MP3, WMA, OGG, APE, and AAC. The modern interface is clear and a breeze to use, so most users won't even need to deal with the help files. Besides extracting files from CDs, Lavavo CD Ripper can convert files among all codecs it supports. It also features a utility for burning MP3s and WAVs to CD. If you're concerned about space, you can rip tracks into the more efficient VBR MP3 format, though you'll only be able to normalize WAVs. In our tests, the burner, the converter, and the ripper all worked just fine. All told, Lavavo CD Ripper's ease of use makes it a fine pick for beginners.
With Lavavo CD Ripper, you can rip CDs to MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, APE, VQF, and WAV formats in only one step.

Lavavo CD Ripper supports full-audio CD-playback control, CDDB, MP3 ID3 v2 tagging, multiple CD-ROM drives, and CD-ROM auto-detection.
