Music Ripping Software

Hello, I was wondering if there is any ripping software available which will actually rip to 2 different formats at the same time like one to MP3 and the other to lossless WAV file.

I am looking at a way to have files to use on my device yet have lossless files to play on the computer.

Is there such a thing available without having to rip the same CD twice.

Yep, and you can specify different folder destinations for each format.

I have used it before but find it insanly difficult to configure plus you have to pay for it which is even more insane.

Are there any easy guides to getting the best out of it?

Max is free and rips to multiple formats at once, not sure if there is a PC version / equivalent?

Is FLAC better than WAV now and what is the more universal lossless format that will work on anything?

FLAC is better for 'our' purposes because it supports tagging, plus it frees-up a bit of disc-space compared to WAV because it uses lossless compression.

Eh? Insanely difficult? It's a piece of cake! Certainly easier than EAC in my experience.

Oh yes, god forbid anyone should be rewarded for their hours of hard work...
