foobar2000 Converter

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

My question is in regards to the converter tool within foobar2000. Does it provide accurate conversion with no loss in quality? I did try it by converting some 24-bit/96kbps FLAC files to AIFF and it converted successfully without any errors according to its error report. Thus I assume an accurate conversion took place and all should be well?

Try it yourself: convert the AIFF back to FLAC, right click the file - properties and check the audio MD5 sum. It's a checksum of the audio data and should be the same as in your source FLAC file.

 

Short answer: yes it is a bit for bit accurate conversion, unless you choose a different bit depth.
