Same amount of steps. This is only an issue if you're planning on re-ripping.

 

MP3 needs to be converted to PCM data to be burned to an audio CD.

The CD player needs to convert the MP3 to PCM data in order to play a data CD.

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention the most obvious benefit from MP3 CD's: You can store several times more music on them.

The point being that the lossy format shouldn't have been used in the first place.

 

A potentially better option to the CD player is a reasonably good PMP.
