I am debating whether i should buy Led Zeppelin 4 on CD or the mp3 version both from Amazon. I listen to my music on an Audio Technica ATH-M30(with an ipod) and im wondering if it would sound better on the headphones with the mp3 version or the cd version that i will rip into an Apple Lossless file? The CD is a 1994 remaster.
Disclaimer: I do not know whether Amazon even has a decent gapless solution.

and not that badly compressed.
Although info on the loudness war is always good to have, it’s not impossible these replies might be taken as indicating CDs have an intrinsic advantage of higher dynamic range; but in fact, most releases in MP3 are encoded from CDs anyway, and there’s no format-level reason for increased DR, so an MP3 sourced from a CD will have the same DR as the latter.
