BenQ, LG, and Plextor drives have worked well for me. But drive OEMs change from year to year, and there are unit to unit variations. I have one LG drive that's magic at getting perfect rips from marginal CDs. Blu-ray drives have been slow with EAC, though. DBpoweramp is good for ripping CDs with the least amount of user input (just swap discs when the tray opens). Just make sure you've configured the titles and tags and directory naming and cover art and reports and compression stuff before getting carried away and ripping a whole stack.

The reading stability of the CD driver itself is very large. If the error is read every time, the converted file is of course distorted. I recommend to try PIONEER BDR-S12J-x, at least try PIONEER BDR-S09J-x for CD ripping. PIONEER BDR-S09J-x has almost no sound and no vibration when reading CD.

Using the SATA to USB adapter, the CD driver can be placed independently to avoid the vibration from the computer. At the same time, the external power supply of the SATA to USB adapter is used to make the power of the CD driver cleaner.

No. If the software cannot read the data at all it will probably abort the rip, not leave distorted audio. Ripping a CD is a data transfer operation; it either works or fails.

People really do worry about nothing, bit perfect tips are utterly simple to achieve, short of a skipping disc.

You should first learn about PIONEER's PureRead4+ technology before you come to comment.

However, if the cd driver is always in error due to vibration, power supply and other factors, and is still in the same place, no matter how good the software technology is, it is impossible to know whether it is wrong. I suggest you try the PIONEER BDR-S12J-x and then post a your new comment.

For a CD that has been read more than ten times, in fact, his surface will be magnetic, causing the CD driver to read errors, and need to be demagnetized. This is not Mystery, it has been verified, otherwise Acoustic Revive's Demagnetizer will not be sold for twenty years.

If you are interested in the details, you can read the patent.

How can people believe these crazy theories? I have tested many discs and none ever had a problem caused by magnetism.

You can patent nearly anything, doesn't necessarily make it technically valid and that particular patent seems to have expired.
Not to mention a CD has no ferrous material to be magnetised. Plus the required magnetism to upset the laser tracking mechanism wouldn't be possible from the CD label (if you believe the patent).
