CDex is built on top of cdparanoia (although you must set it to be paranoid
about reads, from a drop down list) -- does EAC do anything that cdparanoia

Once properly configured, EAC is just the same. It handles the retrieval of
titles, naming of songs, creation of subdirectories (as required),
converting to MP3, etc. It, of course, also does far more.
Its primary advantage over other ripping software is that it detects read
errors and does multiple rereads to attempt an error-free read of the sector
in question. . Other CD ripping software will accept the data received
from CD-ROM drives without checking for read errors. These errors sometimes
are audible. EAC does multiple reads to verify that the read was accurate
and reproduceable. It also corrects for sample offsets in CD reading
drives. I've used a lot of CD ripping software over the years, but the only
Windows package I trust is Exact Audio Copy.
