if you ripped them from an audio cd with eac they be hard pressed to be anything else.

If you extracted from an audio CD using EAC, they must be 16bit 44.1KHz. That's CD redbook standard, and no audio CD will be anything else.

the CDs are burned!

i usually use ffmpegx (http://www.ffmpegx.com/), which is a video/audio encoder & converter...but it'll also tell you the specs on a file



but as they said above, if you ripped a cd using EAC [PC] or xACT [Mac], then the files will undoubtedly be 16bit 44.1kHz wav/aiff files

As said, EAC will rip to wav and that is standard 16bit 44.1KHz. Perhaps what you are wondering is how to then make sure that the files you extracted were not made from mp3s originally?

It matters not if they are factory pressed or burned CDRs.

If you're extracting with EAC, they are audio.

If they are audio, by redbook standards, they must be 16/44.1.

Maybe Lynne's on the right track, and it's just that you aren't asking the question you intend to ask?
