Quoted from the guide:
Quote:
The phrase "rip to FLAC" is a bit misleading. EAC rips music tracks from a CD to wave files (that have the .wav extension) that are stored in your computer. EAC can only rip to .wav. It can not "rip to FLAC" or "rip to mp3", etc. However, EAC can be configured to start an "external encoder" such as flac.exe. If EAC is configured to start flac.exe as an external encoder, the .wav files get compressed to FLAC as soon as they are ripped. From your end it looks like EAC indeed "rips to FLAC".

Are you sure you set up an external encoder to convert the files to FLAC after being ripped as a .wav? STEP 4 explains that process pretty clearly.

It doesn't hurt to convert it. Notice the difference yourself, I think FLAC is better than MP3.
