wrong read offset using EAC
I just ripped a whole bunch of cd's using eac and have now discovered that the read offset I was using is wrong (long story)  How does this affect if at all the quality of the rips and or wav files themselves?  I tried searching on this topic and didn't find what I was looking for.  Thanks in advance.

In themselves, the wavs are not affected at all in quality. It's a very small time shift of the data.

It affects their comparison with other wavs, or the comparison of their CRC (checksum given by EAC as an extra control of secureness).

It will affect the comparison with the original if you want to burn an offset corrected copy. The data will be exactly the same, but shifted.

Details in the FAQ of the forum, link at the top of this page.

Thanks for the reply.  I did read through those links in the faq but I didn't see anything that mentioned the consequences of using an incorrect offset.  Thanks again.
