absolutely, but I work in radio and as a musician.  many factors may 
prevent you from noticing it however, including playback material, the 
source material itself,  and what you are listening too.
try comparing if you came the same song  in lossly, and in the real thing 
like a cd or lp.
There are specific parameters for cd quality for example,  256 is too 
My question about socks though is if you can burn a real audio cd with  it? 
one that can be played in standard stereo equipment?
