I will be going back home soon and I wanted to get some of my dads music in the higher cd/record quality than the mp3s I have right now.
What I am wondering is will I get better quality by ripping CDs or records.
From what I understand the records have better quality because of analog vs digital but I am not sure which will be better in the end.
Reason CDs might be better: Whoever created the CD from the master had way better equipment than me and so the recording on the CD will be higher quality than anything I could record.
Reason Record might be better: I could record at a higher sampling rate/accuracy than what is on the CD (I have more than enough storage)
So which will give me a higher quality audio file?
One more thing to note is that my dad has a super nice record player but it might be broken. If it is I will have to use a cheaper (I guess 50-100 dollars) player. Will the answer to my question change depending on which record player I end up using?
