I think that the best application to grab audio from a CD is EAC. It
is only available for windows (I know that this a Debian forum). This
program is one of the reasons I keep a windows partition in my hard
drive. I does a great job specially with CDs which are not good (ex.
scratch). It has lot of features like detection of read errors or
comparing some kind of hash of the ripping with a database, etc...
It also has many options to write a CUE sheet. You need a CUE sheet to
make an exact copy of your CD with your tracks(ex. in flac or mp3)
EAC is what I have used to convert my CD collection to flac. It is
worthy to use it. Unfortunately it runs in windows
I think you can
run it with wine
