Nice App. XLD can also decompress 24bit FLACs properly, as opposed to Switch, which only creates 16bit files.

XLD is truly a gem! Eats and converts everything I throw at it!

This app is awesome for making clean CD rips without any pops! I use it for every CD that goes onto my Mac. Once I discovered it, I went back and re-ripped my CDs.

awesome application. Every once in a while I need to convert flac files to mp3 and this is by far the best application I have found on any OS ( I do mean that ). It also has full multi threading support and it works very fast on a multi-core CPU. The only gripe I have with it is that there is no option to delete processed files.

Very great app. I think it may be the only lossless music decoder in mac that support cue.

Comprehensive application preferences. Really impressive app.

Awesome ripper tool, nice and simple interface, excellent encoding options, logging facilities and metadata from both freedb and Musicbrainz. The EAC replacement on OSX without doubt.
