VLC can extract audio from most sources with no loss of quality, because there is no re-encoding of the content.

The way to do this for DVD video is (on Linux):

vlc --no-sout-video dvdsimple:///dev/scd0@1:1 :sout='#std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=./file.ac3}'

Note: :sout means that the option sout applies only to the preceding stream, not to the whole command line. See VLC command-line help.
