to what shall I convert my flac albums so I can listen to music in the car stereo

post #1 of 5

hello guys

 

as u know no cars support flac, so my only option is to use an sd card or a usb memory stick

 

to what format shall i convert those flac files to maintain the best quality.

 

I have a pioneer prs80 so it supports many formats except flac

 

and what is the best conversion program free

If you just transcode your music as you copy it to the SD card or memory stick, I'd probably go with 256-320kbps mp3. Most FLAC music playing software can do this for you. Foobar2000 can but you need an add-on I believe which isn't too user friendly. I use Media Monkey, which has a free version that I think will transcode without having to pay for it.

By the way, Clarion, Pioneer, and Kenwood all make car stereo head units that support FLAC.

i don't want any loss in quality and as far as I know mp3 is compressed 

 

shall convert to wmv

I realise that flac is a lossless format but has the data come from a lossless source? If not, then there's (arguably) less point worrying about lossy compression.

 

I would also consider whether going with a supported lossy format is really that much of an issue in a noisy environment like a car. I would take a look at ogg if it's supported, there are a range of quality settings that can be used.
