Scared????? of who, you??? HA HA HA HA And I'm happy to see you are
back at one your favorite trolling activities- name calling. I know
your personality won't admit to it but a lot of what happens here has
absolutely nothing to do with you - there are many reasons posters use
different names, security being one of them and it also (I know it's
hard to believe) is none of your business!!!!
Why not go back to explaining to all of us how Saint Wilma Fine
(whose name according to you is spoken in whispered reverence by recording
experts!!!!!!) could tell the difference when the same CD was copied using
different machines. That was not only informative but amusing. Ta-Ta
As much fun as it is to pile on TD, Fine isn't the only sound expert who
heard inexplicable differences between pressings.
[Q] Could you explain why a CD-R is better than a CD when spinning a
disc and why this difference doesn't matter when ripping and playing
back from hard drive?
[A] I wish I could explain why. I’ve read a number of theories and some
of them may or may not make sense.
From my earliest days in CD mastering, I always noticed that the
finished CDs from different replication facilities all sound different
from each other and none sounds indistinguishable from the CD master
used to make it. Often, CDs made on different production lines within
the same plant don’t sound like each other either. In all cases, there
is a loss of “focus” and fine detail, usually subtle, sometimes not so
Diament solves the 'problem' by advocating computer playback.
