Can you provide a visual example of what you mean by loss of 'quality?' From the source statistics should be nearly identical. I would consider the display resampling and perhaps make a copy of the original and generate statistics. Another test would be to import the statistics from the source to the exported one and see if look is the same.
Also can you identify pixels in both rasters and compare the results. Since you are not changing the coordinate system, I do not think that values should be altered due to resampling, unless you are altering the spatial extent of the raster.
I found the problem was my misunderstanding of rasters and the general rendering process in ArcMap. I learned ArcMap stretches imported rasters causing them to look super bright which I took for as 'lower quality'. I turned stretching off for one raster and noticed it looks just about the same as its source, despite the minimum range value being different by +-1 in the imported one.
Thanks for the great info.
