Re: Copying minidiscs
IMHO: If you have the choice between D->D copying or
D->A->D ALWAYS take the D->D copy. You may not notice
a great deal of generation loss at first, but it's there.
D->D recording is completely LOSSLESS, meaning you can
make 100 generations of copies without ever hearing the
slightest hiss, but just the mere fact of going through a
digital:analog converter, and then back again analog:digital
gives you a much wider sensitivity to distortion, hiss, electronic
buzz, the truck passing by with his CB going too hot as he
screams "BREAKER BREAKER! DID YOU SEE THAT
HOOCHIE MAMA?! WHOOOAH", etc..
Test the theory if you must.. Take 2 Sony MD's, go line-out to line-in
and make a copy. Turn it around and copy the copy, again, again,
again until you hear the hiss. Now try it digital -> digital and note
that the sound never alters from the original.
