Re: Best File Formats

You want to use EAC to extract the audio as wav files from the CDs. Then, if you want the files to take up less space for archival purposes, you may use something like Traders Little Helper to convert the wavs to flacs. flacs will take up only about 40-60% of the space that wav files will take up. flacs are also lossless files (wma and mp3s are lossy files) so you may convert them back to wav if you want to burn another copy and the copy will be exactly like the original. I have a link in my sig to the software part of our FAQ.
