Re: Burning Lossless Files to CD-A; Why the f@$k do SHNs take so damn long?

Like iamhydrogen said, it decompresses the files first - more precisely, it creates a Nero image file from them, which is burned afterwards. This is to avoid running into problems with file formats that cannot be decoded quickly enough for burning on the fly (think La or OptimFrog; maybe less complex formats on outdated computers too)

(oh and for the record, the result is the same no matter whether you burn with a temporary wav/image file or not, the only difference is that with the temporary file you need enough harddisk space to accommodate the entire show in decoded form)

Yes, in fact it exclusively burns cds as DAO/gapless
