Exact audio copy, flac to alac conversion question? 2016-09-05 18:00:37 Hi,I rip CD's using EAC,then convert them to Apple Lossless and listen through Itunes. I used to rip to FLAC, then manually use DBpoweramp to convert them to ALAC. Recently I discovered how to make EAC rip them straight to ALAC using ffmpeg. So my question is: is there any difference between using ffmpeg versus dbpoweramp / is one preferable over the other? I'm not exactly an audiophile but I want my files to be as error-free as possible. More generally, do files lose quality when being converted from one lossless codec to another? Say I convert a song from FLAC to ALAC, then back to FLAC - will it be just as good as the original file? I've noticed that there's usually a slight difference in file size between every conversion but I'm not sure why.Thank you!
