I don't know anything about Freerip. It may default to a low bit rate, which saves disk space for your MP3 files, but sacrifices sound quality. If you can't choose the bit rate then quit using that program.

MP3, like most "lossy" compressed music file formats, selectively throws away data when compressing music files. The higher the bit rate, the less it throws away. The higher the bit rate, the better the sound quality.

Just use Windows Media Player.

Exactly. Then make derivative copies for playing on a music device.

Who's hesitant?
I have a 50GB Box account pretty much empty.
I have a 10 GB DropBox account. Backs up my phone pics to "the cloud" and to my PC.
I have all my music backed up to Googles' Music service. I don't really use it. I signed up and synched everything when it came out. I just don't WANT to stream MY OWN MUSIC when I can have it all loaded onto my 64GB phone.
But....
I still have EVERYTHING OF VALUE TO ME on a RAID'ed USB hard drive attached to the router that Phil mentioned. What if my Internet goes out for 2 days? I still have everything...
