Problem Burning Hi-Res Aiff-C Files To Audio Cd





I'm trying to burn hi-res AIFF-C files (176 kHz/24 bit) to an audio CD with toast 11 on an iMac.

When I listen to burned CD, it plays ok except there's a scratching sound like listening to a worn-out LP.

Is there something I can do to prevent this?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

Toast is using QuickTime codecs to convert the audio to 44.1kHz/16-bit for audio CD on the fly while burning the disc. It probably will turn out better if you use the Toast convert window to do that conversion separately or use whatever audio app you think will get you the best 44.1/16 result. If you want to retain the higher-quality audio then I suggest burning a Music DVD and go to the custom encoder settings window to change the audio to PCM. Of course, this can only be played on something that plays DVDs and not on an audio CD player.

Digital Guru thank you for your answer!


I'll try that.

I've allready noticed that with iTunes I can burn Aiff-files to audio CD without problems.

CD's will of course be 44.1kHz/16-bit.

I'm thinking of buying an USB-Dac that can handle 192kHz/24-bit.
