I am looking for a CDDA utility/CD ripper that preserves as much metadata as
possible. I was recommended ffmpeg by people who use it to convert WAV
files, but in looking through the documentation, I could find nothing on
ripping raw audio from CDs. Is this correct, or can anyone set me straight?

Thank you,

best bet is to use paranoia to rip wav and cdtext then use lame/ogg/flac/etc to compress
