With the emergence of compressed audio file formats, quality is sometimes poor compared to the audio CD where the files came from. Formats such as FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec can compress audio files with minimal loss in quality. It is possible to extract the contents of an audio CD with the file size reduced to 50% with no difference in sound. You can play them back with common player as long as you have the codecs that come with it.
