[More nonsense] Converting FPL Files

Is there an explanation why converting fpl files to the other available formats yields inferior sound quality than when the Write CD option is used and creates a CD which is sonically identical when played via foobar to the original fpl file? Write CD is the only method which does this and I am wondering why. The main problem is the 80-minute limitation for audio CDs.

To give an example of the sonic qualities CDs created via foobar compared with the fpl file, play [link removed] via foobar youtube plugin; then, using foobar, compare this flac file [link removed - source not properly cited and sample exceeded 30 seconds in length] which  I created using Express Rip to rip the CD created using foobar.

1) FPL file is a playlist. It doesn't contain any music itself.
2) It's just your imagination, I suppose.

Did you even bother to do the sound comparisons? I know fpl is just a foobar play list which references a location, so what?

This is not necessary.

But you're obviously not understanding what it means. Try do understand it and make an ABX test, before making statements about sound quality comparisons.

I'll let my Stereophile Class-A rated stereo system speak to that!
