A bunch of bunk.

This article about digital music being inferior to actual printed CDs to audiophiles is complete bunk.

Any real audiophile knows that if you compress an MP3, a lossy format, in high Constant Bit Rate (CBR) or a high-to-highest Variable Bit Rate (VBR), the audio quality is relatively unaffected, even when pumped through a massive stereo system. A true audiophile knows that encoding in a high bit rate on a LOSSLESS format, such as Apple's MP4, is almost identical sound quality to a mastered recording. Yes, it impacts the portability, but with 60 gigabyte portable MP3 players out there, are people really concerned about an 11 meg, 320kbit audio file? I know I'm not.

This article just smacks of RIAA presence. A way for the RIAA to have some sort of "news article" to point at when trying to make their traditional "mp3s hurt CD (and now stereo) sales" arguments.
