Any advantage using FLAC over MP3 for vintage music? 2009-06-21 18:01:29 I have some recordings, both on CD and vinyl, of music issued on 78's in the forties and earlier. Some recorded at the best quality available at the time, others field and audience recordings where quality is ok but not that great. As I'm transferring as much of my music collection as possible to my hard drive using FLAC, is there any point using FLAC for these older recordings?I've been using FLAC for everything but it occurs to me that eventually disc space might become an issue. I can't tell the difference, with these older mono records, when listening to the original and a high bit-rate MP3, but I don't have audiophile gear or anything like that. Still, I'd like the best quality possible for any future requirements.
