EVERYBODY. STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN.
1. Be nice to everyone here. No wank shall be tolerated.
2. No claiming my rips as yours. I rip in a specific format. I won't go hunt you down, but I will have a very sad face.
3. Comments are appreciated very muchly.
AND NOW, SOME BRIEF INFO:
I rip my CDs in FLAC using Exact Audio Copy, and use MediaMonkey to make separate V0 VBR conversions for the masses.
I don't buy CDs all that often, so don't expect this place to be a CD-rip factory.

SO WHAT IS THIS V0 VBR AND FLAC ANYWAY?
Here, have the Hydrogen Audio wiki on V0 VBR
. But if that's too tl;dr for you:
V0 VBR - Variable bit rate means that the bitrate is based on the amount of bits in the actual audio file, and thus the end result in the V0 VBR mp3 file is unpredictable. Due to this bitrate being based on audio's actual bits, the file size is a LOT smaller and the quality is a LOT better than 320.
FLAC - FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Compression. Lossless compresses the audio straight from the CD, kinda like a ZIP/RAR file, but no actual loss of data is done, as opposed to lossy (mp3, AAC, etc.). This, of course, means that the file size is about 2-3 times larger than a lossy file, BUT the sound quality is superior.
SO... WITH THAT IN MIND:
Don't ask me to rip in 320, and definitely don't ask me to rip in ALAC (Apple Lossless). You want 320, make requests in another community that can do all that for you, and if you want ALAC, buy the CD and rip it in iTunes yourself.
Have a happy music day!
