    What is considered the difference in quality between a copied disc and an original CD ??

    Cos it's digital theoretically there shouldn't be any. Unless not all of the bits are copied over..

    Or is the change soooo little it would be impossible for the human ear to distinguish.

    Cheers

    thedoc46,
    You'd be surprised at the difference in quality. All the top end sound seems to be flattened when listening to a copied disc. I use both my Mirage Omnipolar floorstanding speakers and also being trying some Mirage Omni-Sat speakers (really bright sounding speakers), and boy can you tell - flat flat flat...

    Your copier, and / or CD-R's are crap.

    I'm not being funny mate, but its true. Mine are absolutley identical. Either that, or your mind is playing tricks on you ;)

    Not so sure about that,Paul.....once the copying is done,a lot comes down to the quality of the replay system and it's ability to resolve the differences between the copies and originals....I'd agree with Mr 928,and would also say that mine can easily show the difference between a copy and the original.
    There are lots of very good scientific reasons why there should be differences,and why they may or may not be audible,and most of them have been gone over on these forums at great length.
