Hi ferrari909,

Any file format can be burned to a 'data' CD. For an 'audio' CD to play on all CD players, the various audio formats must be converted to the standard Red Book audio format (digital audio encoding: 2-channel signed 16-bit Linear PCM sampled at 44,100 Hz). The closest audio format to Red Book audio is the wave format.

So I assume you're saying the quality of a wmv to Red Book audio conversion is better than a flac to Red Book audio conversion (ruling out the hardware involved).

If so, what is your proof of this? I do not want to start an argument, just increase my own knowledge. The bottom line is what sounds best to the individual user, imo.

Winamp Pro v5.666.3516 fully-patched - Quinto Black CT v3.6 skin
Windows 10 Home 64-bit v21H2 desktop - Logitech Z906 5.1 speaker system
