Added :

Cactus Datashield 200 mastered errors Technical analysis
Excessive Copy Protection?, Mp3 related


...the only analysis we have proving that
-There are actually intentional errors
-They might not be all handled as well by modern CD ROM players as by hifi players because there are a few with contiguous samples.
-They prevent CRC comparisons between drives, like in accuraterip.
-They are repeatable and thus not detected with non-C2 secure modes, and not corrected by EAC once detected bu C2.
-They are not generated in special places "so as to be inaudible".


Lame development
Dibrom&JohnV -how you see the future of LAME? ...further links inside.

...should have been there earlier


Why was 44.1 kHz chosen ?
48, 44.1 khz, why no and/or not 40 khz, Only for 2 channel audio...........

...little-known info, that was just needed in the CD audio is not good enough thread


Removed :

Samsung, Pioneer and Teac vs Cactus datashield 200 audio protection@EAC

Not much useful info... the fact that protections are drive dependant is already stated in the CDFreaks link, and illustrated in the Key2audio tests.


I'd like to have you opinion about these two :


What are the parameters used by MPC for encoding ?
--verbose output of all --quality settings, A List For The Advanced User
Asked here : http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....=ST&f=12&t=6802

Is it useful in the FAQ section ?

Lower bitrate presets
"alt-preset standard -Y" VS "preset medium"

Is it accurate ? Still on topic ? Useful ?
