Hi guys. I need your help! I have recently spent a lot of my time converting my dads and my CD collection to FLAC's to be able to use on my high res media player FiiO X1. Now my music tastes are extremely diverse and I don't just listen to one band or genre, so buying CD's can be quite costly as im sure we all know as well as 90% of the time I only like a handful of songs on a 12-15 song album. Is there sites online where I would be able to download high quality FLAC's free (excluding pirate bay because its just painful) or pay for them in AUD?
http://tidalhifi.com/au A new lossless music streaming service has just launched in the US. $20US/month and can be accessed if you have a VPN. Unlimited access to over 25 million tracks. The selection is pretty good, I found most of the artists that I've been listening to recently (with the exception of FKA Twigs and Bored Nothing). I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet as I'm at work, but my housemate says the sound quality is excellent. We've been using Spotify for streaming and downloading FLAC to listen to through Audirvana, but he says this sounds excellent, and he wasn't expecting it to sound much better than what we currently use. Also has high definition music videos, and curated editorial content, such as articles, features, and playlists from music journalists. Very excited about this! Edit: Also available in the UK
So late last week I ripped a couple of thousand songs to my laptop. Rightly or wrongly I used iTunes for this task. Not wanting to be locked into all things apple I chose the only non-apple lossless format available - WAV. As it turns out this wasn't a great decision as WAV appears to be next to useless as far as tagging goes. I now have all of the ripped songs listed under the one unknown album by an unknown artist. iTunes itself has them categorised correctly (a little google search has explained why that is). The use of these songs is temporary until a dedicated server solution was determined but fell into the following two categories streaming over home network to Smart TV or PVR (tv seems to be a lot more robust) loading onto phone and/or ipod for mobile music. My questions are: Do i need to redo the ripping? iTunes can apparently do a conversion of sorts but it isn't clear if the converted file will be tagged appropriately and each song will be duplicated instead of replaced What program, if any, would people recommend for performing the conversion outside of iTunes is it possible at all to convert WAV's to another format and have the tagging from the original retained? At this stage i'm only really after title, artist, album, genre Should i be looking at a particular lossless format to ensure compatibility with multiple devices in future and if so what? Should i just create a lossy version of the ripped songs until such time as i have a complete, long term digital solution? questions 1-3 would still need to be resolved Any help appreciated
