I've used k3b to make several audio cd copies with great success. The
copies even turn out to be quite playable on cd devices not designed to
use cdr discs. That's how close to the original they turn out. I have
also recently made several audio cds from mp3 and ogg files. Again k3b
worked flawlessly and created especially nice audio cds for both my
player (reads mp3, cdr, cdrw, etc) and the wife's player, standard car
cd player factory installed.

If you are in love with EAC, stick with EAC, unless you are trying to
rid yourself of Windows since moving to Linux.
