Allante93 I think you will find that the Core rips your jazz CDs fine. Editing the metadata is a pain if you have imported 1000 albums and have to go through and tweak every one, but doing whatever is needed on a CD by CD basis as you rip them is no problem. The issue with classical CDs is that exactly the same CD can be sold singly and packaged into numerous different collections, every time the record companies think of an excuse, a birthday, death, anniversary or whatever. The metadata service tends to go with the most recently published collection, and so the album name and cover art can be totally different to what you expect, like "The Greats CD 23" instead of telling you what the music actually is.
I suspect that jazz is going to be better than classical and worse than rock, but probably no problem if you are dipping and editing as you go.
I've ripped 2,000+ jazz cds to a US without too many metadata problems.
That's as maybe. I ripped all my classical CDs to my Unitiserve mostly without problems. But it all went wrong when I imported them into the Core. And ripping new release classical ...
This suggests that the software for importing data from the UnitiServe to the Core is flawed. An import procedure should by default preserve the metadata of the original data. At the very least, it should allow users to preserve the metadata of the original data if they wish to do so.
