Yes, ones made from the master are much better. It was common practice even in the old days to cut records from 2nd or 3rd generation copies of the master tape. The idea was to put the master in the vault and leave it, no one could tell the difference. LOL. The master is the closest thing to the actual performance that we will ever have. Some of the older ones are still of exceptional quality. It is POSSIBLE now to make masters that are even better but that seldom happens. Cassette's were crap and 8 track worse and if you didn't have a real professional tape recorder you have no idea how good they can be. Some of my favorite records were recorded up in the Andes 40 years on portable pro recorders.
