    24 Bit FLAC HQ music to 16 Bit for CD type player ??


    Hi there

    I have a load of 48 bit high quality FLAC music files which I want to copy for some people who can only play on standard audio type equipment which means a Max of 16 bit CD quality audio. Any decent software around that can do this -- I know it can easily be done with studio grade software but I want something free and easy

    (ITunes can do it but I loathe iTunes and wouldn't go near them for love nor money !!).

    BTW if you use things like PLEX / amazon fire stick etc 48 bit music won't play - or won't be transcodable either in the server application. As for Blu tooth speakers -- well to any decent audiophile blu tooth is essentially a 4 letter word when talking about quality --wifi beats blu tooth hands down --not even oin the same UNIVERSE. Blu tooth OK for phones etc but tht's it. !!!!

    BTW if you hve access to HQ speakers (and I mean really High quality ones) the 24 bit sound makes a HUGE difference - even with standard 16 bit CD sound which isn't too bad either. !!! However I do need to transcode some of my files to 16 bit so anybody whose got some decent software suggestions on this -- would be grateful.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    thanks @dalchina

    downloaded from the German site as other downlinks were riddled with "Installers" - other programs etc -- one has to be really careful these days getting the CORRECT program when using a lot of links !!!!

    German site OK though (and you can install in English).

    I can see why people get all sorts of unintentional stuff installed on machines these days -- you need to be really careful before you actually click download !!!.

    Cheers

    Indeed... deception has never been so prevalent.

    Its home page is indeed German, but you can of course try
    xmedia recode site:majorgeeks.com
