CDs are not 320kbps, ish. They are 1411 kbps ripped AIFF/FLAC. FLAC is an uncompressed version of the original.

If using a ripper with AccurateRip database checking, a bit for bit replication can be obtained. i Tune s music among others, is compressed. Sure, most people can't hear a difference or care. But just saying a digital copy of music doesn't lose any quality needs more explanation, ie what format?

As for CDs, the quality is still much better than i Tunes and you can generally find CDs much cheaper than i Tunes downloads anyway (e Bay, used music store, et al).

Most people don't care about bit rate, multiple file sources, etc.

But yes, you must retain the original disc if you also have the digital copy. I dont think I'd be proclaiming that I rip all my CDs then get rid of the original on a blog such as this :)

"As someone who happily ripped and rid (sold, gave away, threw out) his entire collection of CDs,..."

Legally I believe you still need to retain the original copy.
