CD qualityThe audio quality of a music CD, which is digitally sampled at 44 kHz. Although devoted audiophiles may find the terms "CD" and "quality" to be a contradiction, MP3 music has even less musical quality than a CD, because parts of the original digital data are actually removed during the compression process (see lossy compression). See CD and audiophile.
