Impressive indeed. 103 genres? What major genres do you listen to? Just curious how your iTunes came up with 103 genres....

Media Center reports: 83528 Songs (15639 are FLAC), 65 Genres, 4769 Artists, 8305 Albums, 897 GB.

 

I still have 600+ Classical CD's that have not been transferred.

Just under 19,000. I've recently trimmed my library size by over 60gb without losing a single song though. I was ripping in AIFF and now I've converted those to ALAC. Same sound, smaller size. I can actually rip more CDs now. :D

I suggest getting better recordings or headphones instead of re-ripping to FLAC. 320 Kbps mp3 LAME is very very close to flac, unless you are using Stax headphones and listening MFSL or Chesky. Most people, including myself, may not be able to tell 320 Kbps mp3 from flac. However, most people are able to tell an audiophile recording/mastering from an average recording.


Thanks for the valuable info zffnn.  It gave me something to think about.  I might re-rip my top 20 CDs to FLAC anyway, and leave the rest as 320 Kbps LAME.  Headphones, AMP and DAC will be purchased in the coming months.

CD .wav rips: 1083 songs - 43.8 Gig    (And growing every week)

 

Old mp3 archive: 1659 songs - 6.76 Gig
 

post #382 of 581

Only about 1000 songs all in FLAC, 25 GB. . . 

 

I'm fairly picky I only seem to really like rock and electronic music.

525. FLAC.

I had a crazy episode and deleted my entire collection about a month ago. Was 19,000 tracks, all FLAC. Now I get to start fresh and do things properly. Until I realize IT'S ALL WRONG and my brain explodes.

Currently going through my small CD collection and ripping them again.

I've done stuff like that  before :/

FLAC is not about listening (usually) it's about archiving.  Lossless is...lossy and not a good way to store a good collection.  i have mp3 copies of all my FLACs for use on the ipod etc. and for filling up portable drives to take with me on business trips...heck unless the master is a truly stellar recording i cannot tell 256k mp3 from original.  but the server at home gets FLACs as a "permanent" archive.  

of course you can't convert 320 LAME to FLAC so you'd have to re-rip everything.  i've done that several times over the years LOL....back in "the day" there wasn't really any FLAC and my ignorance led to a lot of low bitrate mp3s...i've spent years tracking down lost albums and/or re-acquiring a better copy

So if space is not a concern, .wav files are the best I can get off of a normal CD - right?

 

FLAC - just as good as .wav but smaller.

 

?

there are some opinions about this, but lossless is lossless.  FLAC is smaller than WAV but i'm of the majority that feels there is absolutely no difference since a properly ripped FLAC is bit-perfect, just compressed (like a ZIP file).  Space is always a concern ;)  and while it's cheap i have no interest in (nearly) doubling space requirements just to have WAV files hanging around

I'm just ripping CD's into .wav's using Foobar.

 

...does Foobar have an option to rip to FLAC?

post #389 of 581

yup, just click the Output Format header in the Convert dialog box.  foobar will convert most anything into most anything.
