Re: Question about the "no silver CD >> CDR transfer" rule

Many times, the cassette lineages are all there is to be had. The only publically circulating (available) recording may be the one that is CASS>CASS>DAT.

If the recording has been distributed on silver CD, it's widely available everywhere, and, as such, the most desirable, widely circulated source. When that is the case, rips to FLAC shuld be made straight from the silver CD, with EAC, in secure mode, with the offset correctly set for the extration drive used. There is no need to have the extra extraction>CDR>extraction>encode in the lineage since so many copies of the silver are available to be extracted directly to WAV>FLAC.
