RE: CD-R Burn Quality and Laser Noise During Playback

"Technical issues aside, yeah most CD-Rs sound like crap compared to the original CDs. There is opportunity for loss at every point in the process."

Some burner software apps produce CD-Rs that have somewhat of a "leaden" sonic character during playback (HF textures don't seem to be resolved- maybe a jitter issue), but the better apps produce copies which I'd have a hard time distinguishing from the original. (I'd fail an ABX test if I were to try one.)
