The way to import music into iTunes at near CD quality is to import it as AIFF. Go into iTunes Preferences > General > Import Settings > Import Using = AIFF Encoder, Settings = Custom.

Custom Settings are as follows, Sample Rate = 44.1khz, Sample Size = 16 bits, Channels = Stereo. This will get you as close to CD as possible. BUT be aware that this will also eat up ALOT of disc space not only on your computer but also on your iPod.

If you have set iTunes to import using AIFF as described above then importing CD's from Music Giants will result if a higher fidelity file.

Here is a image showing an example of my iTunes songs that I imported at VERY high bit rates, 1411kb, using AIFF.



Hope that helps.
