I think you stated right when you said that apple ripped without even telling you there were errors.

So here is the important parameters :

dbPowerAmp >preferences

the first choice is about Ripping method

if you choose Fast, then it is like Apple : life is beautiful, and you have ripped your CD. But there is a risk (it happened to me) that suddenly, you have horrible clicks inside a track

If you choose Secure (Recover error) then you may have the pain to spend 8 hours (yes, it happened to me) to rip one single track. But then you should have no click.

What causes this errors ? Any of those

- bad pressing.

- issues on the CD surface : dust, scratches, jam (yes, a friend of mine, gave a CD to his young daughter. She put her finger full of jam on the CD, but he never noticed until he tried to play it). This one is common

- optical lens is dirty, or misaligned.

Hope it helps. BTW, even on Qobuz, they sell CDs where one tracks is bad, with those clicks. It happened to me once, I complained, and they withdrew the album.


So as a recap never complain against a software which tells you the truth about how bad is your CD.

FYI I ripped around 1500 albums using dbpowerAmp...
