Ripping mp3's from CD? Best settings/program?

I'm looking to rip my existing CD collection to 320 kb mp3 but I hear that the iTunes encoder isn't that good for mp3's. Can anyone refute that claim? Is there a better ripper out there?

Yeah, as I read more I'm starting to lean more towards 256 kbps as opposed to 192.
