Native Bitrate for CDs

Greetings,

I always trying to burn songs at their highest bitrate, but I was wondering, what is the bitrate of the songs that are ON the CD? I'm guessing these are files in the CDA format.

Thanks,
Shane.

CDs are in the WAV file format. CDA files are just a kind of shortcut to the actual file. All from what I can remember.

There is no sig.

Strictly speaking no. Yes (s/file/data).

CDs don't contain files (unlike DVDs, Blu-Rays etc.), but the audio data on them is the same as in uncompressed 16bit/44.1khz wav files (which is a Windows file format).

When you rip a CD in FLAC, you usually have to mess with those cue files, which tell you where songs start and end. It's very similar to a vinyl record, where there's a continuous stream of information, but you can see where one song ends and one begins by looking at those little blank spaces. Those are essentially what the cue files are pointing to.

Whether you rip to individual files or image+cue has nothing to do with the file format.
Cue sheets have the advantage to preserve pre-gaps (instead of appending them to the previous track) so you can make an exact copy of the original cd.
