Re: CD, SACD & DVD-A
First of all I am not able to look at all the posts I may have put out on this Forum. On some other Forums, I pick my username and I can see my full stat and all the Posts by me. Can anyone guide me how I can do that here so I may avoid duplication of my requests as I do not wish to be a nuisance but to continue to receive help.
1. I have ripped a few Redbook CD to FLAC (44.1/16 res) and saved on an external HD. When I play the FLAC track (via USB to Onkyo TXNR609) it does not sound as good as the same track on the CD played through Cambridge Audio 650BD and the same receiver/speaker system. The 96/24 downloaded tracks play but I am not able to compare as the downloaded file is the only copy.
2. Is the FLACK file from the HD inferior because (1) the ripping drive LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4020B (about 5-7 years old) is not good enough (2) the data transfer from the HD via USB to the Receiver is degrading or (3) the Receiver is not reproducing the full resolution? The receiver does have 192/24 DACs and CD/SACD/DVD-A played on CA650BD through the Receiver is very good.
Would anyone care to attempt answers and GrtGrfx my very helpful member have you any suggestions?
Edit: I have found how to see all my Posta. Thanks

Re: CD, SACD & DVD-A
Yes, If you had a Mac you could convert files into Apple lossless (which does allow track info), but even that wouldn't matter as you cannot record directly to the Apple lossless format, because it's only available in iTunes which has no recording capability. In any event, Apple hardware Lossless is no better than CD (16 bit/44 kHz) quality, and it seems you want better. The quality of your sound conversions will be colored by your computer's noisy power circuits. Wish you cheerful!
