Does anyone know any Codecs that audiograbber can use that makes mp3's without losing audio quality?

I doubt that you could make an mp3 file without loosing audio quality due to the nature of the mp3 codec. You would probably be better off choosing a different codec like ogg vorbis which is much higher quality.

Flac is the standard lossless format, mp3s can be as good or ****ty as you want to make them, but always with some compression. I don't use audiograbber, doesn't look like it supports any lossless ripping.

Audiograbber doesn't do lossless, but you can use some extreme/insane presets for LAME (the mp3 encoder) that will give you some good sounding mp3s.

Check here (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Lame) and here (http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/LAME---The-list-of-recommended-settings).

If you want lossless rips, such as FLAC etc, try EAC (http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/) - it's a good mp3 ripper too :)
