I just wondered if this the case, because actually the Mp3 format is using a lot of of overdrives which is not possible in a WAV file. So if I e.g. make an audio CD with some Mp3's, will they remain exactly the same or will they differ from what an audio player would decode?

to the op

the fraunhofer institute has something called mp3hd specs:

* mp3HD is a lossless audio codec (100% bit-exact replica of CD tracks)
* Backward compatible to mp3
* File extension .mp3
* Bitrates for music approximately 500 to 900 kbit/s rates (similar to other lossless codecs), depending on genre
* Embedded mp3 track and the mp3HD file share the same id3 metadata


so yeah. Edit: But only if you use that particular fraunhofer codec.

You can get the tools here:
