Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2008
ReadyToPlay, the leading CD conversion service in the U.S., and illustrate, creators of dBpoweramp, have jointly developed the first verified, secure CD ripping service, called ReadyToPlay Secure. Secure ripping is the process of converting audio CDs without errors. Perfect audio fidelity is guaranteed by verifying a 100 percent accurate audio extraction. Targeted at audiophiles and other demanding clients, ReadyToPlay Secure utilizes a combination of new technologies, specialized hardware and processes. More information about the service can be found at http://www.readytoplaysecure.com.
"A verified, secure lossless conversion is the technical gold standard of CD ripping," said Jason Seeba, ReadyToPlay VP of Technical Marketing. Ripping errors typically manifest themselves as pops, clicks, or extended periods of silence. Secure ripping is different in that errors are detected, potentially recovered and unrecoverable tracks are separated out. Many ripping providers claim to use 'special hardware' or 'the best error correction hardware available,' yet they provide no specific details on the process. "With illustrate's expertise, ReadyToPlay Secure was designed with specific hardware and exacting processes that deliver the optimal configuration for error-free CD conversion. Problematic CDs are professionally repaired and the resulting conversions are verified as accurately ripped against other known perfect conversions of the same CD worldwide. Finally, all claims and processes are documented, so as to be transparent and accountable for the client."
"ReadyToPlay has taken CD ripping to a new level with this unique service," said Jeff Tedesco, President of ReadyToPlay. "Before, audiophiles had to concern themselves with the extracted audio quality of a CD during the ripping process. The combination of verified audio quality and metadata from four sources, including AMG and GD3, make ReadyToPlay Secure the highest quality ripping service in the world."
"When partnering with ReadyToPlay, illustrate's focus was on choosing a company with a proven track record, whose attention to detail was paramount while at the same time embracing the forward thinking ideas and processes of secure ripping," said Mr. S. Elkins, CEO of illustrate.
