CD Replication is defined as "the process of producing discs via methods that do not involve "burning" blank CD, DVD or other discs; the latter is known as duplication" ("Replication (optical media)," Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia).

The replication of optical discs involves:
- the creation of a glass master from a client original master.
- the creation of a nickel stamper from that glass master.
- the injection molding of clear optical-grade polycarbonate substrates (clear discs) from that stamper.
- the metallizing and lacquering of those substrates to produce compact discs and DVDs.

Replication is used to make the retail ready CD's that we buy in stores.

CD Duplication is defined as "the process of assembling source material—video, audio or other data—into the proper logical volume format to then be recorded ("burned") onto an optical disc (typically a compact disc or DVD)" ("Optical disc authoring," Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia).
- This is exactly what you do when you burn your audio/files to a CD-R on your home computer.
