Installed Size:  5.54MB
Function: Ripping, Encoding, Decoding, Burning

Poiksoft has been in the MP3 converting business for a long time and claims it was the first ripper to be able to save in the MP3 format back in December of 1997.  All that aside, the recent version of Easy CDDA Extractor is a good one.

Although the trial version allows only a limited number of uses, you will be able to test enough features to see if it is right for you.  If you are looking for a program that does it all, it should be.  The program flawlessly records data from your CDs and saves them in MP3 or WAVE format depending on your choice.   It also provides WMA, VQF, OGG Vorbis and other format support.  The encoding engine is provided by LAME which ensures top quality.  The decoder is quick and accurate and does exactly what you would expect without a hitch.  One difficulty was finding how to access Easy Audio CD Creator from inside the program.  However, access to this burning program was available from the Start Menu or an icon on your desktop.  

The interface to the program is very easy to use and burning utility reminded me of Easy CD Creator. Overall, I haven't yet found a problem with this program and it gets a good recommendation here. (Review Updated 7/1/2003)
