Ripping CDs in Audirvana?

What is the recommended method of ripping CDs to Audirvana?

Can Audirvana rip CDs directly? If not, should I use iTunes? XLD? Other software?

I have a dedicated (older) MacBook Pro dedicated to music, running Audirvana (trial) in standalone mode (without iTunes).

No, Audirvana doesn’t do this. You will need a separate application. I’m using dBpoweramp (https://dbpoweramp.com). I also use it to convert between different format (E.g. convert highress flac to mp3 for on the go) and to edit meta-data. Works quite well for me.

I use XLD, and I’m very happy with it.
