Thread: Mp3/cd-r/original Cd - Perfect Substitutes Or Not?

  1. #1
    Hi everyone!

    I'd like some opinions on this matter:

    Would you agree that music in MP3 format is a perfect substitute for music on original CDs?

    And what about CD-Rs vs original CDs?

    Why/Why not?

    The quality is less on CDR...but saving 30 bucks is well worth the decline in quality

    Personally, I feel nothing beats the sound of official cd's and vinyls. However, if you are listening from your pc or a standard "all-in-one" hi-fi, there shouldn't be a noticeable difference and the wires from pc-to system will probably be the standard leads, so then mp3s are the best substitute in that case. However, have a really good system then I say stick with cd's for your faveourite artists and the rest keep on mp3.

    It's not so much the hummm as it is clarity. The difference on good speakers between 128 and 192 is massive, you can hear the notes so much clearer, you can hear more voices at once and the channels are seperated better so stereo imaging is preformed at a higher standard and far away instruments individually make up the song instead of being grouped together and sounding muddy.

    Yeah.....but when you Pay for a CD or lets say a few CDs you want to keep them Scratch free and without no fingerprints getting on them.So Ripping them to MP3 and Storing the Original is what alot of People do.
