Well....

to start.

Of course YOU may not be able to tell the difference but there is a lot of other people that at least think they can.

This is not the only info on Audirvana out there.If your ambitious you can use this thing called "google" and "search" :twisted:

I will say that if your on Mac you can use a free player called "Vox".
Also very cool but not the same quality IMO(and no itunes integration).

Keep in mind you may need a serious playback system to hear much difference but if you do have such a system I think you'll agree....

But maybe not.

BTW I am not a representative of any of these companies nor do I profit from them.
I am VERY interested in getting the best sound reproduction however.

FLAC is not supported in iTunes because of the record companies... don't blame Apple...

Maybe but proof please?

I can see some record companies prohibiting FLAC Downloads but FLAC support on a third party
(a very wealthy and powerful third party at that) seems highly questionable.
