[quote author=Homsar link=board=albums;num=1058887611;start=0#13 date=07/22/03 at 22:35:22]<br><br><br>Do AIFFs sound any better ? Besides, songs in any format get converted to AIFF when you burn them to Audio CD instead of MP3 CD.[/quote]<br><br>AIFF files are essentially the same thing as WAV files. It's just that AIFFs are native to the Mac, while WAVs are native to the PC. Both are uncompressed and can be used for the source files for a burned CD.<br><br>MTF's points about MP3s and WAVs are all perfectly valid. He knows what he's talking about.

The first primaly difference that I seen, nothing about the coding source format, it's the sound card. On my sick PC, my sound wasn't terrific...(crystal something or ESound)

The sound card will make a difference for the quality of playback on a PC, but a CD burned from wave files on a PC will sound as good or bad as a CD burned from aiff files on a Mac.<br>
