I have a large music collection (1TB) that is stored in FLAC format. Unfortunately many portable players like iPods do not support FLAC.
So I've decided to convert my FLAC collection to AAC, so I can play my music on an iPod. I have chosen the dBpoweramp program to do this.
It would be less time consuming to directly convert my FLAC files to AAC.
However, would it be better (higher quality sound) to rip all my original CDs to WAV files and then convert from WAV to AAC? Or to convert my FLAC files to WAV files and then convert to AAC? Obviously this would be way more time consuming and involve multiple steps. But I might be willing to put in the extra time and effort if the sound quality is better.
