Loss­less au­dio

Australian T3 - - WI-FI HI-FI -

MP3, AAC and WMA files were all well and good dur­ing the por­ta­ble mu­sic boom, when re­stricted mem­ory put a cap on the amount of info a dig­i­tal player could pack in. Now, though, with on­line stream­ing mak­ing stor­age less of an is­sue, you can dare to choose qual­ity over com­pres­sion, with sources like ALAC (Ap­ple Loss­less Au­dio Codec) and FLAC, the open-source ver­sion, en­cod­ing noise and si­lence for tracks that sound live.
