Questions about cd ripping, high res audio, and others

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, 
I came across this commentary in a cnet article about ripping a cd in flac: 

 

"People, please do not get confused.  A cd's resolution Is Not and Never will be High Resolution it is 16 bit-depth / 44.1 kHz file.

High Resolution FLAC files can be as high as 24 bit depth / 192 kHz. 

Ripping a file from a cd to a FLAC file in any program you Are NOT improving the Resolution or Bit Depth.  Mostly what you are doing in a program such as those listed is changing the files extension  ie  .mp3 to FLAC and putting the file into FLAC format"

 

 

i am curious about it, what's the format of the songs in the cd? is there any advantage in ripping them into flac? 

is buying and ripping a cd any different to downloading a mp3 file from the internet?

 

Thanks for your answers

 

PD: I apologize if  this is not the right subforum to post this question
