My question is, I've recently found a lot of FLACs appear shelved below 22.1khz and whether this was a cause for concern as I am relatively unlearned in comparative FLAC analysis.
I thought turning to direct CD FLAC conversion rather than 320 would get rid of the annoyance of cross-checking for transcoding and proving spectral transparency
@saratoga: slks brought this up too; why are low-pass filters then even used if they support acoustic degradation? I'm not sure I understand.
ALSO: how do you set up your (casual) FLAC libraries? Are there any guides for beginners as to best practice etc.?
