In JA's article
he states: "We recommend that, for serious listening, audiophiles use uncompressed audio file formats such as WAV or AIF"
There is no mention of using error correction or not - will this affect the overall quality of the sound?
In doing numerous online searches, answers to this question involve clicks, pops, speed and usefulness but not the overall fidelity that may or may not be affected by using error correction.
Under iTunes preferences, there is a box to be checked if one wants to use "error correction". Before I copy 500 or so CDs for my new Transporter, a definitive answer would be very helpful.
EDIT: I am using iTunes 8 on an Intel iMac Leopard 10.5.6 and will switch to iTunes 9 in a few days. I am importing everything in AIFF as it is native to Transporter - no decoding needed.
Sorry that I left out this information when originally posting.
