This may be a new thread.
My query regards the audio
quality obtained from CDs ripped into a computer via say iTunes.
The CD/DVD drives on a typical PC
or laptop appear to be of cheap construction. The disc cradle seems flimsy and
the drive is noisy relative to a good quality CD player from say Marantz or
On this basis how good is the
sound stored in the PC for streaming to a Hi-fi installation. I am assuming the
original CD is ripped with Lossless format.
Surely, there must be some degradation
in audio quality?
