Convert WAV to FLAC to Get Smaller Audio Files without Quality Loss

The Comparison between WAV and FLAC

WAV format, created by IBM and Microsoft, is a standard digital audio format in Windows. Since WAV is uncompressed raw data audio format and contains any sounds such as sound effects, music or spoken words, the file size of WAV is usually very big. With the appearance of MP3 and MP4, WAV format is getting less popular.

FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is an open source codec. Compared to WAV, as a lossless compression type, FLAC has a smaller size with excellent quality. Normally, FLAC is used to back up a CD collection because the sound quality will remain high. FLAC can compress an audio file to approximately 50% of its original size.

After vinyl and Cassette, CD is the most popular music publication format. However, CD is hard to store and carry. People want to store their music in computer disk or portable device must rip the music off the CD and store as a computer file. The files will be WAV format if you rip music without conversion. Because WAV is an uncompressed format, it will take too much space (about 600MB per hour). To save space and without losing any quality, you should convert WAV files to lossless audio compression format, such as FLAC and ALAC.
