Hello,

sorry my stupid question.

I need some clarification.

Actually I rip my CD to FLAC or ALAC.

But I have heard that the best format is AIFF.

What is this?

I have see that iTunes can RIP to AIFF and ALAC... but if they are lossless format because there are two format?

Please help me to understand

I have read this article and I want to share with you :-)

I think that is only a product imagination.

If an ALAC is lossles how can ben different from AIFF?

Someone can detect difference in the dynamic of the sound?

'computeraudiophile.com' is a cesspool of ridiculous pseudo-information about audio.

no none is likely to detect a difference in a fair test between .wav and .flac and .aiff and .alac unless their software is broken or their computer is substandard.

I hope that's clear enough for you.
