How did you originally encode the files? If they are originally wave,
exporting to MP3 lowers the sound quality for no reason. Unless you are
going to keep your own MP3 copy, use the wave for burning. Even if you
are going to keep your own MP3 copy, if you want the best sound, export to
wave, use the wave for burning, and export to MP3 for your copy. You can
export to wave, then to MP3 without burning the files first or closing
audacity. Just export to one format, then to the other.
