If you like gadgets then I have some great suggestions for this Christmas season. If your spouse likes to watch TV then I would recommend purchasing a home theater system. Even though you might already have a television, such a system can really improve the sound quality. Nowadays most big-screen TVs have fairly poor sound quality.

In today’s age of digital audio, many people decide to take music on the cell phone. However, most cell phones don’t allow storing songs directly in the same format as they are available on the CD. In addition, a CD cannot directly be copied onto a cell phone. Therefore, an additional step is required. This step is done by using a CD ripping software.

You can either download a software that can rip a CD for free or you can purchase a paid version. Paid versions usually have additional features and offer support from the vendor. However, there some decent freeware versions available that can be used. What is important is that you have a CD-ROM or DVD rom drive. This drive can be used to extract the audio data which is stored on a CD. Before inserting the CD into the drive, however, you should make sure that the CD is clean and doesn’t have any scratches. Scratches can degrade the audio.
