I normally use Exact Audio Copy on the PC to do my CD backups. This combined with the latest Lame binary usually results in incredible quality particularly at –preset fast extreme settings, so on the Mac, its a little harder. iTunes has an MP3 encoder, but if you want the really best, try “Max”:http://www.sbooth.org/Max/ which provides Lame encoding of your CDs.

It uses “Music Brainz”:http://musicbrainz.org to tag things. I use tritag to do this, but they also ahve a Tagger at MusicBrainz and there is a freeware one called “iEatBrainz”:http://jay.tuley.name/pages/software#ieatbrainz that appears to be better than Tritag in that it does a lookup automatically.
