except that they started as compressed audio files so re-ripping them
to mp3/aac again only compounds those issues.

there are also programs that allow you to create a fake CDR drive that
will actually create an ISO instead. iTunes can't tell the difference
and so no actual CDR is required and "ripping" from an ISO is always
bit perfect whereas even EAC can't claim that.
