Hi Guys.

I have read about the opus format, but can't find much info about what software to use for it?! I'm considering re-ripping my CD-collection and I would like to give .opus a shot.

What software are you guys using for the CD-to-opus ripping?
Normally I use ExactAudioCopy, but it seems that there's no option for using the opus encoder in this?!

Any suggestions?

You say that you're "re-ripping" as if this is the n-th time you've ripped your library from CDs. Just curious, but why don't you just rip it to FLAC/ALAC/anything lossless and then worry about the other parts (lossless to mp3/aac/opus/ATRAC) later?

Ha, I was going to question whether Opus was the best choice for a library at the moment, but ATRAC is definitely much worse suited.

Opus is great, especially competitive at lower bitrates, but as said, you should consider ripping to lossless, and worry about formats like Opus later when you want your music on devices with limited space.

Besides, although the library is at a stable version, the currently available command-line tools aren’t. But if you really want to try out an encoder, I don’t understand the confusion: type Opus encoder into Google, and click on the first result that isn’t Wikipedia.
