I just downloaded the Trial of dBpoweramp.
What settings do you folks use??
I'm assuming you folks here rip to FLAC, which encoding do you use??
The Default compression lossless level Number 5, the highest is losseless level number 8 or the "Lossless Uncompressed", which is above #8
I'm guessing best to use Losseless Uncompresed ??
Compression affects how much effort goes into compressing the audio, all compression modes give the same decoded audio (it is lossless after all), the higher compression levels will give a small % file size saving, but will require more time to compress and decompress. Compression Level 0
requires the least compression time, whilst Compression Level 8
the most. Uncompressed is a special compression mode with stores 16 bit audio in an uncompressed state.
