I was recently reading an article on PC Magazine about how to manage your digital audio and how to buy headphones, etc. So I really want to import Cds in Lossless, not in MP3s. I’ve been reading about the FLAC codec. Some people say that is so good (even Cat Power’s music is online in the Matador Records official site) and sites like Itrax or Aixrecords sell high-fidelity music in FLAC format. But some other people say that why complicate the life if we got Apple Lossless format, I know that iTunes and the iPod, with some hacks, can play FLAC, or I can convert directly. But which one is better? And now the iPod. Neil Young said that the music was getting a slow disease with the MP3s and the iPod, said that we don’t listen to music; we just listen to codes and formats. But if we listen codes and formats I want that they be the highest quality codes. Anyway, can the iPod hold up Lossless files? The MP3 have frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHz, but Lossless files are 20 bits/96KHz. Maybe with some good headphones I’ll be good, but I’ll can notice the difference? If no I think I will have to considerer other music players. Can the iPod do all this for me?
