My bad, I neglected to mention that.  I have over 30k tracks and some music I have FLAC only.  I don't care what format it is on my phone but I would like to be able to sync those tracks as well.

 

From what I can tell, J River converts the FLAC files to ALAC (or some other format) on the fly during the syncing process, so I'll probably give that a try.

 

Thanks for the help

I'm not sure that I really like J River.  If I go with the conversion route, is there a way to bulk convert all flacs without having to sort through all my folders?

Yes. If you are comfortable with your Mac, you can use the finder to locate all .flac files under the top-level folder, open in XLD, and convert in place (i.e. replace the originals) to ALAC.

 

I would make a copy of your library and try it to make sure it works... then, just drag/drop into iTunes and you are all set.
