2 identical digital streamed signals coming from any 2 sources (should) be equal?
Not saying they (will) be equal, but that they "should" be equal.

The laptop that will do the CD ripping, will be using Exact Audio Copy software (EAC)
EAC will re-check the ripped file up to like 175 times if needed, to ensure the ripped file is perfect to the data on the CD.
I could be wrong here, but I don't think the ripped file will have ANY jitter. The EAC software makes sure of it.
As where the CD Player laser has to try to fix errors on the fly as it's playing.
When the PC file is payed back, there is no laser in the way to try to fix errors that have already been taken out.
Not 100% sure of all that, but I think it's right.
I'll do a little more reading and report back here.
