Flac/Shn players for Macs?

Hi, I'm a new mac user, and I can't find a good program to play FLAC and SHN files. I've tried Cog and VLC, and both had the habbit of randomly closing or playing the songs in a manner where you heard about 1/4 second of sound, 1/4 second of silence, etc.

So does anyone know of a good program to play lossless files on Macs?

Thanks,
Jacob

Re: Flac/Shn players for Macs?

I use MacAmp Lite X, which plays both shn and flac files, although it may require a plugin to support the lossless codecs. I have a plugin entitled "Shorten Decoder.bundle" in my library.

Btw, I am using this player on an Intel based Mac..
