Hardly, except if you have a perfect CD copier. Bitwise read errors will
always happen, and IIRC audio CDs have less redundancy than data CDs.
But libraries like cdparanoia (which is used in most if not all CD
copying programs) work hard to make a copy that is as good as possible.
That's also why ripping usually works only at 1x to 3x speeds, and not
the max speed of the drive.
