Thanks for the nice words, and I’m really glad that you found the information helpful!

Out of lossy formats, I only use OGG. Samples : 25027840 I haven’t personally tried any FLAC files on my slower devices (like portable music players). There is no quality loss with any level of compression. Furthermore, FLAC is not just restricted to 16-bit (CD quality), and you can buy files up to 24-bit/192kHz for another potential boost in performance. So, regardless of the compression level that is chosen, FLAC will always decode into the exact uncompressed audio track (bit for bit). With every major edition of iOS and iTunes, we secretly hope for FLAC support, but we may never get it. With those points, the compression is able to take those seconds and essentially compress them down to nothing without losing any data (since it is lossless after all). It can be tailored to spit out just about any format and it automagically does tagging and the like. I’ve been doing the same thing recently, going though boxes of old cd’s ripping them to flac. I assume decode times have a similar trend to encode times? A lossless file, the FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is compressed to nearly half the size of an uncompressed WAV or AIFF of equivalent sample rate, but there should be no “loss” in terms of how it sounds.

Rest assured, the quality is exactly the same, unless your CD was scratched. Sample Rate : 96000 Hz Average Bit Rate : 3361 Kbps Also, you could trade some of that time saved to enable some of the other “accuracy” checks to ensure that you have the best possible rip. Which uses the OGG VBR quality 7 encoding.

If you want to best preserve the quality of your CDs, use a program that will prioritize quality. FLAC and/or Apple Lossless, are about 1/2 the size of the original CD making that one-hour CD about 300MB. It’s a portable container, that currently beats OPUS at low bitrates. It might only save 10-15MB per album, over alot of cd’s that can add up. According to Wikipedia (which cites comparisons that don’t seem to directly mention decoding times), there shouldn’t be any noticeable effect on the decoding of the FLAC files based on the compression level used during encoding. Will higher compression impact the quality when played? I usually just either scan the covers for my albums, or pull them from a site manually. (Disclosure: no longer sells MP3s and is now owned by CBS Interactive, parent company of CNET.). First of all, I am new to FLAC but understand the concept of lossless. Regardless of the compression level that you choose for FLAC, you’ll be able to convert it back into WAV or uncompressed audio. Experts such as Malcolm Hawksford, professor of psychoacoustics at Essex University, say that despite competition from proprietary formats like MQA and DSD the humble FLAC is still competitive. We don't as a general policy investigate the solvency of companies mentioned (how likely they are to go bust), but there is a risk any company can struggle and it's rarely made public until it's too late (see the. . It's "bits of data per second".

;0) —————————- Regardless, I am looking at purchasing a portable media player, one of the Chinese ones like the Xduoo X3, D9 or NiNTAUS X10 for high-quality audio on the go. Ditto on everyone else. Decode times are essentially negligible on any modern hardware. Though was one of the first sites to sell MP3s in 1999, dedicated players like the Rio PMP300 were subject to legal action by record companies. I am in the process of rejuvinating older recordings in various formats to compile and burn as an audio CD and as flac is able to accept metadata editing, to include CD text and ISRC code, It seemed to me that converting all to lossless flac prior to burning as a CDA would not need any compression and set it to zero (default was 5).

Ripping time is not impacted, because ripping is always to uncompressed WAV. Secondly, you don't need an internet connection to listen to your music, and while the Offline modes of both Tidal and Spotify enable you to use it on the subway, it still needs to be connected to the 'net at some point to get the files. It is expected that future devices like cellphones will compress music at the same speed as current desktops, so I would really try to give it your best in compression.

After looking your table I’ll go for level 3 (1~2% less compression ratio than level 8) because I plan to use the files on my portable player without reencoding. Thanks for taking the time to explain this. I was looking for some idea of compression level:quality. I hence recommend FLAC-4. And yes, magic, the Naim pics up the higher bitrate (albeit being it a bit weird showing most of the time 1413 kbit/s which is obviously wrong as it should be 1411.2 kbit/s). The first song is full of instrumentation and is very seldom quiet. For the record, the best ripping script I’ve ever used is abcde (a better cd encoder). It's even in your music streams. The only difference is the amount of processing power to encode/decode, and the corresponding file size. At compression 0 the file came in at 526Mb, and when I subsequently tried to compress the file using JRiver I found that I could only get around a 5% compression using level 5, so not worth it. That means that I will save somewhere in the neighbourhood of 12 GiB for my entire collection. 1st Audio And every physical buy you get there only includes a download, so I love it for being able to get other formats, like vinyl and tapes, and get a perfect FLAC included. It was more about the time of encoding, and the resources needed to decode. I don’t have any full tests yet, but am planning on doing so at some point in the future. Play Time : 04:20 2. Previously the only way to get "lossless" files was via the uncompressed CD formats CDA or WAV, but neither is as space-efficient as FLAC. I use M4A to play music on my cell phone. You’re welcome. Thanks for the recommendation! If you'd rather pay someone else to do that for you, we cover our favorite sites for buying FLAC files here.

Stars including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Deadmau5 and Kanye West called for a fairer deal at the launch of Jay Z's Tidal streaming service.

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. This is a reason that I strongly suggest a vendor-neutral approach to decoding.

Zach, I also never found a need to encode more than once since my analyses were all done on a dedicated host that wasn’t performing any other tasks.

Pretty reasonable for lossless given a cheap 160 GB will store about 500 CDs. I used Asunder (which is a GTK ripper) for the bulk of my music, but the CLI ripper that you mentioned seems interesting.

600MB in size. At abcde’s wiki page i found that abcde will “Calculate replaygain values for the individual file (or the album as a single unit)”.
