When it's so easy to convert to ALAC it shouldn't be an issue. It is a resource hog, but if you back up your less than 1mb library file, you get to keep tagging, AND ratings.

Why would I convert my entire library from FLAC to ALAC just for a player that doesn't even look nice? I prefer players I can skin and if I can skin them dark colors, all the better.

iTunes was nice back in the day and more importantly if you just have MP3s..but if not..there are many other players better than iTunes.

$1595 for the HD800's
$900 for the Sig DJ's
$800 for the Bursons DAC

The Sig DJs are for when i travel because i can swap the 6mm lead with the 3.5 for my phone and laptop and they have a low impedance. the HD800s are pure home music and gaming. Although the DJ's are doing ok for BF3 and COD. But the clarity on the HD800s is amazing and if they had a little more base they would be perfect!

I'm not trying to convert you over to the 'dark side' or anything lol. Calm down :-).

If it's what you started with, its not a bad option though, and musically, doesn't lack anything unless you want random features.

I've tried Winamp before but I didn't like how cluttered it was so I switched to Foobar2000 and I've been using it for years. It plays FLAC perfectly fine and almost anything else you can throw at it.

download trial and give it a try

http://www.jriver.com/download.html

So I tried Jriver and as my first trial of anything and I liked it. It was easy for me to convert my AAC to FLAC. I can see my hard drive space being eaten up quite nicely too. Glad I went 1TB Velociraptor.

I'm impressed as any noob wearing a great head set for the first time would be so gullible to be tonight. wink.gif After 60 hrs of burn in, finally turned them up. As of yet only running off my mobo. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Schiit Magni incoming next week and hopefully by end of next the Modi around the 9th of March.

I'm bummed because I figured out tonight I've been listening to trash sounding quality forever. What's more exciting to me is my HD650 is not even being pushed without an amp/dac yet. Thanks for all the suggestions. I will give the other names being thrown around a try before I commit . smile.gif FLAC only moving forward for me.
