It's paranoia more that seems slow. You get up to about 2.5x at best.
I've heard anecdotal evidence of people using RealPlayer gear in Windows
to rip full length CDs in under 10 minutes. I use toolame rather than
lame as there's something about the lame license which means debian won't
package it. On my college box the Ripping (1Ghz Athlon) is always miles
behind the encoding. At home though, it's a P2 400Mhz which is a little
slower at the encoding in fairness to it.
It all works fine. It's just that I've heard of better performance and
