Report Encoding legacy SP: end of track truncation in Software Posted January 11, 2007 OK, I'll retract slightly from the above: importing as PCM does not always sound perfect. In about 30% of the tracks there is a very small (much smaller than importing as A3+256) "pop" in the transition of one track to the next, as a tiny amount of the end of one track may be lopped off. This is only apparent with the types of album that are continuous and is so small in comparison that I can live with it. It's still the case that PCM needs to be written to audio CD and imported from there, to have acceptable A3+ continuous mix albums or recordings. I'm grateful that it's possible at all - wonderful RH1!
