  1. Just checked. Lossy, sadly. This is one of those $10 CD-R sets that gets used as a “bonus” to other bootlegs, so not surprising… Traders Little Helper gives one hope that it might be minidisc-sourced, but the spectrals are clear: it is lossy.

    1. Thanks for notice! A lossy sourced CDR was in circulation for a decade or more. It would be a nice surprise to get true lossless…

    2. MiniDisc uses a lossy format. I am pretty sure that only experts (if anyone) can deduct from viewing the spectrum whether a recording is MiniDisc- or MP3- (or WMA, OGG, MP2…) sourced. I believe the only reason why lossless trackers like Dime allow MiniDisc masters is because the lossy format used on MiniDiscs does not exist on any device (PC, MAC…) other than the MD player itself.
