I'd like to store a load of CDs of my laptop, so I can take them with me without having to carry the CDs (ultimately planning to play them through an external dac in my office ). I'd like to use lossless compression to store these - so want software that maintains sound quality, makes files smaller, is preferably free or cheap, and prefarably with a UI that doesn't suck.
I've got Sony's multimedia software on my laptop, but see the last comment about UIs. I could obviously use Windows Media Player, but is there something better I could use? (I've tried iTunes, and don't like it...)
