I also find this unacceptable. If you're made to pay
to use WinAmp's MP3 encoding, why should you be blocked from using the encoder's best quality settings? At the least, there ought to be a "custom commandline" text box that allows you to enter any coding method like --alt-preset standard
, if not a specific choice for that mode.
3.90 is the most quality-tested encoder version. Really, WinAmp ought to use 3.90.3
, but it is certainly good enough.

I guess I don't understand the rush. I would rather have quality than quantity anyday.
While lowering the speed does help prevent a bit of errors, what's more important is a program that does error detection & correction. The only I know of is Exact Audio Copy
, which fortunately is a freeware CD ripper. Just download EAC and the LAME encoder I linked above, and you'll get top-quality MP3s.
