Here's some info (from discdupe.org) that correlates with what my general understanding is:

The errors all seem to occur when using a standard CD (or SACD/DVD/etc) player. This is because (as far as I am aware) that the players are not allowed to copy even a small portion of the content of the disk down to any sort of memory in order to play it. This is due to some peoples' (ie. the recording industry) weird ideas on copyright and the electronics industry being unwilling to take them on. Copying a CD down to a hard-drive can be bit-perfect, and the resulting playback should have none of the errors that traditionally occur as a result of imperfect reads (shouldn't be any jitter there either).

With flash memory being so cheap nowadays, it shouldn't be too long before a kit is available so that you can do this DIY mod to your own player. At least, that's what I'm hoping.

Sorry about the OT post...

I have noticed through my car audio and home stereo that the promise land album by queensryche was of high quality as far as sound definition and overall clarity

Pat Coil - Just Ahead (Sheffield Lab recording) is also a brilliant CD. Especially track 4 Lady J where the tune is carried on the symbols. Not something I have heard done before. This is also a good system test, see if you can hear the colour of the metal used to make the symbol. It ssssshould not sssssound like a sssnake in the grasssss ;-)

Symbols or Cymbals?

It'd be difficult to hear symbols.

Well you can have your cake and eat it too- says an old saying. If you DBX Type 1 compress record your CD to a Yamaha CDR HD1500 hard disk recorder and then play that back through the DBX Type 1 expander like a DBX 150x or DBX 155 the DBX will do its purpose as a compander, dramatically improving your original CD. I agree with cloth ears that current CD playback is very poor, however the actual CD disc is terrific, there is far more on the CD than conventional players can play. Companding with DBX proves that. I have recorded all my CD's this way, and enjoy playback approaching theoretical perfect. Cheers / Chris

I just stated this on another thread but I'd say A Perfect Circle "Thirteenth Step". Amazing sound quality.
