Ok my HE-500s arrived 30 minutes ago and I've been listening to it for 10 minutes. I like them so far but I need to start adding to my FLAC library.
-I not familiar with these things but just curious how good of quality are music bought from itunes? Ack, I don't ever want to go there again.
-If I convert music from CDs using itunes, is it worse than FLAC or same? depends on the settings??
-What are the best websites to buy music in FLAC format? Don't know (HDtracks maybe?), never have bought flac, only made my own from CD's
-If there are no sites that have the music I want, is the safest way to make sure they're lossless is to buy the CD then convert them myself? I would do it this way.
I remembered illegally downloading what these uploaders called FLAC/Lossless but I don't trust them because a lot of people can advertise something then lie about it or they're bad quality so I never download from these sites/forums again. Also what made me suspicious is I noticed when playing music I bought, it plays at normal sound in my car using music on my iphone but when I played music I illegally downloaded I had to turn up the volume a lot to get the same volume.
-Best free programs to convert music to FLAC? I use mainly EAC (Exact Audio Copy (free)), and sometimes dBPoweramp if I want to save time doing multiple formats (flac and mp3 etc.) at the same time (I purchased this one but it is worth it IMO).
