It is a lot harder for most ripping apps to correctly extract individual tracks from CDs designed so that the tracks flow from one to the other. I seem to remember EAC having some special feature(s) to help with this. But I could be miss-remembering, it has been a long time since I've had to deal with that issue.

It is easier to just make 1 file containing all the tracks, when it is essential to maintain the CD performance. After-all, it is one continuous flow of music anyway.

I also don't like dealing with those CDs that include short (a few seconds) musical and/or vocal interludes between the main tracks. It's not the ripping, but having to decide whether to include these interludes so that I would have a true representation of the CDs.
