Wave quality or disc writer ?

Hi, there. I’m wondering if anyone have done quality comparison tests on a wav file, obtained from conversion (Mpc-->wav) against using disc writer from any program?. Which wav file should have better quality?. Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking.  And I have no idea what business this has being in the lossless encoding forum, since you're asking about MPC (lossy).

I think he's trying to ask about the "fidelity" of the wav-writing of different programs, compared to the comandline decoder.

Actually, this has been done in winamp between the disk writer and the waveout/directsound plugins.

To be more specific, the purpose of this post is to find out if you get the best quality file (Wav) from  ripping using EAC to wav (Lossless) or using Media Center disc writer (Or winamp, foobar, etc) to create that wav file?. Thanks.

if the disc is perfect the quality will be the same.
if the disc is scratched EAC could will be more quality depending on the drive.
EAC is simply more secure, if it says you got no errors you can be sure,  the rip is error free.

Lossless will always be supperior to lossy.
