The Best FLAC Players Available Today for Playing CD-Quality Music

If you want to convert your precious CD collection into a digital music library you should consider using the FLAC lossless format. It is so-called because there is no drop in perceptible audio quality when your CD’s original WAV file has been converted to FLAC.

At the same time, FLAC files take up less than half the space of the WAV file, while retaining their purity. This makes FLAC the most popular format for audiophiles who are dedicated to listening to very high-quality sound.

However, playing a FLAC file on a player or device that is not suitable for it, will lead to a steep drop in audio quality. It does not matter if you have the best hardware and speakers, you will still need the right player to unpack and decipher the data.
