A couple questions for the CD burning experts.

1. When burning a cd via copying the files FIRST to the hard drive, saving them, then later using them to burn a disc: does this compromise sound quality? More compression?

2. What if you burn a cd per question 1, then make a direct copy of that cd? Any compromise?

thanks

No degradation in either case. When ripping, the files are saved as .wav's, which preserves the full sound quality without any loss whatsoever.

You can make a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy, and they'll all be identical.

Thanks Ed. Just a quick follow-up: what about .wma format? My cd copier allows either wma or wav for hard drive saving. is wma inferior?
