Since I'm picky, I've tested different audio converters.
From the same AIFF audio file each converter outputs a different ALAC file size:
From another FLAC file to AIFF:
and so on...
What's goin on?
Aren't they uncompressed or lossless format that can be converted without errors?
If each software handle them in a different way and outputs a different file size they are not perfect copy of the original.
If a software behave with some errors I can't think about doing it on the fly in hardware streaming renderers or dacs.
