FLAMP3r (FLAC to MP3 simpler)

FLAC or MP3?

In theory, FLAC is a superior audio file format. But difference can be really heard only on high end audio equipment and by trained audiophile ears. In most cases, difference is negligible. In blind test, it's hard to objectively distinguish properly encoded MP3 file from properly encoded FLAC file. Much more important are recording, mixing, producing and proper encoding of music than audio file format.

But marketing rule today's world so loseless and high definition audio formats are pushed to consumers even if they don't bring significant improvements (other than making money for companies). True, FLAC is better in absolute technical perspective, but FLAC is not perfect audio format and MP3 can be better solution in real life.

1. FLAC files are great, but they are huge.
Even on today's devices, FLAC collections can take large amount of available space.

2. FLAC files are great, but they have compatibility issues. Many devices have issues with FLAC files - stutter, gaps, various buffering issues, slow load times and, in worst case, some devices are not able to play them at all.

3. FLAC to MP3 converters are usually not free or are too complicated to use.
