Is the quality of disc duplication as good as replication?

Yes it is! As far as the sound quality or playback quality of the finished copy, it will be the same as your master! CD-R and DVD-R technology has rapidly developed into a huge market over the last decade. It has brought CD duplication down to reasonable prices for short run or small quantity jobs. Before duplication, you didn’t have a choice but to usually do a minimum of 1000 discs.

The only real difference is compatibility. Duplicated discs (CD-R, DVD-R, & BD-R) are not 100% compatible with all players. A very small percentage of players (especially older players) may have trouble reading duplicated discs. It is a small trade-off for the ability to do short runs of your project.
