So you're confused about MP3, CD, formats and you don't mind some technical talk?

You might enjoy this link then. A detailed look at what MP3 does and how cd is so much superior. The second page has most of the heavy stuff and a simple summary.  Scrolling down has two opposing comments about the article as well, don't you just love inter net opinions?

The upshot of all this?

To have decent performance you need cd quality. That is easier these days as storage is so much cheaper than only a few years ago. A decent 1Tb Nas drive is only £ 99

Use decent ripping software and a good streaming system and the performance will easily outperform the cd you ripped it from!
