2007-09-01, 10:46 PM
My 3rd set of shows, probably post one more set and that will be it for a while.

P.S. Thanks for helping me out with the others.

3rd is lossy.
The other looks ok to me.

Thanks for these threads - They've been very useful.

I've been having similar issues with a load of CD-R's that I've been copying with EAC. I only have Audacity, but I've been doing some spectral analysis on them and it seems a lot of them are lossy (some dropping off at as low as 15Khz which is a real shame). It's nice to see examples for comparison both in this thread, and the compare and contrast thread.

Cheers all.

one notable exception to detecting by looking at cutoff is 32kHz DAT... the 3rd one here looks suspicious, could you post another SA screencap zoomed to 2 seconds view pls?

for more info on 32kHz DAT sources see here:
