I was just thinking about something to add to my previous post...
Being in the computer industry I know there are definite differences in the quality of drives. Also being an audiophile I also know there is a definite co-relation with the quality of the drive used in a CD/SACD/DVDA player and the final sound. In that vien, would there be a increase in the quality of the ripped sound using a particular drive. For instance, Asus has a drive called the CD-S500 with anti-vibration elements. Would this contribute to lower jitter in the final rip (which would obviously affect the final sound product)?
Opinions? What drives have people used? Maybe a neat little project for someone.
