How to tell a cd is a dupe or itunes copy?

#1

if someone gives me a cd of music to be played in a normal home stereo cd player, is there any piece of software that will be able to tell me if this cd is an actual duped copy of the orig. cd or if it’s an itunes copy.
if it’s an itunes copy, the music has already been compresed as it was ripped on the computer, only to be expanded for the audio cd, which makes it difficult to re-rip it onto my computer without the sound quality sounding horrible.
thanks for any help.

You should buy the original yourself.
