I am wondering if any one has experience with or comprehensive information on FLAC (free lossless audio codec) and its effect on audio. Here is the information page <http://flac.sourceforge.net/faq.html>.
I cannot address FLAC because I have not used it. However, I use Monkeys
Audio (APE) after I determined that it is truly lossless. I invite you
to follow a similar path with FLAC.
I simply took a reasonable WAV file, compressed it, decompressed the
result, and compared the processed file with the original. Since they
were identical (byte-for-byte), I felt I had verified the claim that
Monkeys Audio is lossless.
