now, if you have those two minidisk players with digital I/O
you could try this experiment, copying a very short segment digitally
but making 5 or 10 generations, and we could see what happens.

my claim is that there would be degeneration due to the ATRAC
compression/ decompression stage...

but I have no actual data to back this up!
