    As much as I'm glad that you're a fellow connoisseur of quality files, I think if you've got a limited hard disc space, then APE or FLAC is over kill particularly if you won't notice the difference between a 320kbps file and a FLAC one - unless you have the ears of Superman and the sound system of God. Though it would be a good idea to invest in a large external HD and backup everything in APE or FLAC!

    APE nor FLAC are easily supported, in the sense that I know of no cheaply available converters that will re-convert thos standards back to MP3 (or indeed any other format). It's all juryrigging Winamp and that sort of thing, which I *hate*.
    Unless either standard becomes far more widely accepted, I would advocate simple WAV files.
    Yeah, they're big.

    I'm using jetAudio to convert lossless into MP3 when needed. It does it directly using LAME.

    Winamp actually has built-in FLAC support now.

  2. Altough it doesn't really make a noticable difference I'm using now FLAC instead of mp3 320kbps.

    I know. What I meant was I cannot RE-encode any FLAC files (without significantly annoying effort) to anything else, like MP3s which my iPod can play, as Antineutrino stated.

    Sure you can. I've done it many times and it's actually very easy to do. Yes, you need Winamp to convert from FLAC to WAV but the process takes only a few minutes to do.

    I know it can be done.
    Like I said, it can't be done without significantly annoying effort.

    I find using Winamp for conversion an absolute pain in the ass, and I'm not jumping for joy with the idea of backing up my 1000+ CDs in FLAC or APE, possibly having to re-encode them back to MP3 through Winamp.
    Unless an affordable conversion program (like Audio Converter) comes on the market that does the same thing with one push on the button, I'm staying well clear.

    The Winamp way ISN'T a significantly annoying effort or a pain in the ass. Far from it! Follow the SIMPLE instructions in the link I posted and it's a really easy thing to master.

    As I said, I'm not looking for instructions, I'm looking for a separate, dedicated conversion program that will do the task with ONE push of the button, like Audio Converter.
    Using Winamp I consider to be a significantly annoying effort.
    Anyone who doesn't is of course perfectly free to do so.

    I see your point... Yes, it's one or two extra steps but stop your sniveling, wipe away those tears and just use Winamp for now. biggrin It's not THAT bad or annoying.

    You big bully!shocked
    Well, I don't WANNA use Winamp (for anything else but playing music)! tongue

    It's a moot point anyway: if I'm ever going to re-encode my CDs (say, when I'm retired or so) it's gonna be in editable WAV format, or through disk images. In the meantime my iPod won't even *play* FLAC, so I'm not bothered.

    As for all those discussions about lossless formats and all, i read and giggle a bit; people, stop torturing yourselves.

    If you're NOT going to use a proper audio CD (as an original audio cd and not custom made out of your own mp3s or anything) which is ALWAYS the best thing to do and which outdoes everything else, then use proper 320kbps mp3s. Other stuff in-between, huge lossless formats you won't ever be able to really tell the actual difference no matter what you think you can tell, are an absolute waste of time and HDD space.

    Except if you like to fool yourselves.

    Society is based on more is better. Photography is in the same boat. When I taught a basic digital photo class and would show people what you could do with a 2 megapixel file they couldn't believe it. Kodak just introduced some insane 40 megapixel chip!

    Spend a little time and money investing in some good speakers and improving your room acoustics.

    for me it means, a 1.000 copies will receive a 30% (at least) buying public that doesn't like film music at all, but wants to sell it later at higher prices.

    If you look at Screen Archives now, you'll notice that you can now buy the editions of La-La Land with autographs. These CD's were only sold at La-La Land but considering Screen Archives now also buys used CD's, collectors can buy them instantly from La-La Land and sell them with interest later on

    Why else are the autographed versions at Screen Archives a little more expansive? This is a sad story and especially a 1.000 copies will sell out quickly. Hell, even a bag of shit will sell out as quickly as possible

    #1... The movie is so interesting that there has never been a DVD release. You either have to be able to still watch VHS or find someone who has the conversion ability to transfer it to DVD.

    #2... I once not that long ago knew a person who collected cards and came up with a pretty rare one of David Winfield as a rookie when he played for the Padres. The punch line. He didn't know who D. Winfield was and had to ask me if was any good. For many of the sold copies I think this is the case with this release and rarity is one of the key components and I don't fault Intrada for what there doing in anyway. There goal is sales=dollars=more releases. In my opinion if they had released 3000 they would have stock for a long time, perhaps forever. If you remember I reviewed the material almost two years ago and liked it.
