What is the best music format?
Best, adjective, of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality
est, adjective, of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality
I will not argue further than this, by what I am reading from his question is that he asks for the best music format, not a specific area in that subject. So his question would be simply asking what music format reasonably meets all of the criteria that makes a good music format, not one that meets only one.

Lossless Codec Like FLAC....No lossy compression and improved audio quality for listening....
Also Windows has a Lossless codex
I've heard this is the best but I have not used it myself. Still using .mp3
It is what they call a lossy compression, but gives small file sizes
The problem is that an artist album can be around 1GB to 2 Gbs :( but I am getting an external soon ^^
Plus, no DRM :D

FLAC, I thought. Although the Issue is due to decompression, space. I converted 3000 songs to flac. Took 4 hours, and then told me that I had run out of space. 340Gig it has used :L
If you are converting from a lossy format (Such as MP3) to lossless, the ONLY gain is use of disc space. No increase in sound quality at all.
It is like copying from a cassette onto a CD and hoping the music sounds better.
Yea converting musing INTO flac was a very silly think to do. You just wasted 340GB, bro :P
I did delete after :L Although, I did notice a very slight differnece

AIFF has the best quality. The format of music on CD's is highest quality AIFF so when i import songs it basically does a direct copy.
