If you click tools, options, rip music, you can use the drop down menu to change the format and then the slider to set the quality, click apply

as far as i've heard, and i know from experiance, the best cd ripper is EAC(exact audio copy). just google it and you'll find the site, btw the programmer is german so forgive him on his english. most rippers make wav files from your computer's sound card (if you have a bad sound card, the ripped files will be of considerably lower quality than the original cd files). but, as far as i know, EAC reads the CD itself through the cd drive and makes a bit-for-bit copy. sorry if this seems like advertising but it's not, this program is really good (and not only in my opinion).

EAC is indeed a good application. Google "Chris Myden"; he has an extensive guide to making what he considers to be perfect Mp3s. He also has configuration files for EAC. I used EAC, the version of LAME (Mp3 encoder), and his config for a while. EAC was giving me problems, so I went to WMP 10. It does the job, and I am happy with the quality. Myden's MP3s via EAC may be better on higher-end equipment, but for my equipment, WMP 10's 192k Mp3s are just fine.

CDex is a very simple CD ripper which is also free (google it). But if you want quality, try Chris Myden's guide first. If that does not work for you, explore alternatives.

Both those work well but I use another app called Easy CD-DA Extractor, and while not free its free trial should be more than enough to rip a few audio cd's.
