I dual Ubuntu 14.04 with Win 8.1, just to use foobar2000 to play my classical music collection which is over 3000 CD's.

I know that using Win 8.1 is heretical but I don't know a linux music playe that can customised as much and has better features.

 

Does anybody know of one?

 

Regrettably foobar2000 is for Windows only and is a tremendous music player putting VLC to shame,

 

I use Asunder CD Ripper to rip to FLAK. Is there any better GUI base tool?

Hi Nick,

Thank you for your advice.

Sound Juicer often doesn't correctly identify the CD and its tags.

I can't find the RubyRipper  package.

RipperX only rips to WAV and I cant see how to set up for FLAK with variable compression.

K3b seems like it is just for CD/DVD copy

 

Asunder still ticks all the boxes

I'm going to try cdparanoia, and RipRight which have verification features which I'm interested in.

 

The search seems endless but I'll keep you informed

It can also rip CDs and DVDs. I've ripped several of my CDs with it and never had any problems.

Thanks for all your advice.

 

The ripping to FLAK and CD verification process on linux seems to be a minefield.

Since I dual boot with Win 8.1 I can use EAC with error correr correction features and Fairstars CD Ripper.has which has many encoding features.

 

Picking the right ripper is important and must be able to encode to FLAK compression level 0

I have a classical collection of over 3000 CD's and I have just bought the Mozart and Beethoven Complete Edition and my collection is constantly growing

 

I have a small collection of CD's of different genres which I also collect

 

Using Wine to use these two applications is my next step

 

I'm still looking for a full feature music player which I can customize with plugins.

 

Ideas?.
