Newbie Question, convert FLAC to high quality file for iTune

Post by malfromcessnock » Wed Feb 15, 2012 7:57 am

Hello board members - newbie here

I'm new to this but have several FLAC files in my library I used to play in media centre (pc)

Can anyone suggest a high quality format so I can play these songs in iTunes.

I notice that after choosing a format, say .aiff there are then more choices to make and this is where I run into problems - way out of my depth.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers, Mal

MPEG4 Audio (Apple Lossless) is what you want - only lossless that iTunes will play. You can play FLACs using Fluke but it's lousy for gapless playback and generally is a band aide.

Thank you Fuga - it worked a treat. File size almost the same. Excellent!
