I was going trough all the new post & came across this one, http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/177874, & it got me wondering. Does the quality of a CD make a differance in the sound quality? Isn't that just the quality of the files that you use? Does the quality of the CD effect the Bass & Treble? I'm not one for Thumping music, I like nice crispy High Ends. I've been buying Maxell's that show Taiyo Yuden as the manufacturer,& the Dye as (Long strategy: e.g. Cyanine, Azo). Now, I don't really want a discussion on the differance in Manufacturers, because I think I have good quality Taiyo Yuden. But, what about the Bass & Treble responses you get from a CD.If it does make a difference,couldn't you argue that one CD works best with one type of music (Jazz,classical,etc..)& another CD would work best with other types of music (Rock, punk, new wave,etc..). Or, maybe I'm just blowing smoke!!! Opinions greatly appreciated!!!
