I am wondering if high end cds such as MFSL gold cds will sound better on a hard drive than a regular version of the same cd? What about XRCDs? I don't even know if XRCDs can be imported. Sorry if these are beginner questions. I am just beginning my journey into pc audio and will start on my music library in the coming weeks. Thanks for your help and advice.
They will sound better than inferior recordings. In this case it does not have specifically to do with the fact that you are puttin git on a hard drive. The same old maxim applies to the hard drive as to a cd player: "better recordings/masters will sound better".
