Hi Guys, Is WMA lossless the same as CD quality..if its lossless then i guess it is? fenderibo
Apples and organges. "CD-quality" is a digital audio bitstream sampled at 44kHz and 16bit with no destructive compression methods applied. "WMA Lossless" is a file format which can represent digital audio at various quality levels, below or above CD quality.
Or looking at it a different way. A CD can be ripped and converted into WMA Lossless and back again with no loss in quality. But conversely not all WMA Lossless files are CD quality, depending on the original source.
Many thanks for that reply..OK lets say the original source is a CD ripped to Media Player...as WMA Lossless best quality, any difference?
No, none. Although some favour one ripper over another. I'll leave you to decide on that for yourself.
