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
