Ripping for flac quality
« on: February 12, 2018, 06:18PM »
So I just downloaded EXACT AUDIO COPY for windows
All this talk of sharing got me thinking.
After a little research I come to find that this program lets you make FLAC files!
I haven't tried it yet and setup is supposed to be a little difficult.
Anybody else try this?
I have hundreds of CD's and albums.
If this works, even though it will be a huge investment in time, it would be worth it to have
25,000+ tracks, of FLAC quality

I got a device that allows me to record from my player to the computer and create flac files.  I took the device out that came pre-installed to help in the quality of sound.  Anyways it comes with software as well. 

I will be adding my small collection of vinyl to flac as well.

My untrained ears can't tell the difference between flac recordings and the actual song on vynil.  I have gone back and forth and both sound really good.  What really makes a difference to my ears is the original recording.  Some songs just have a large dynamic range (whatever that means) and others sound like they were recorded in a shoe box.
