Hi Jimmyweb, welcome to the forum!

APE is a lossless compression format, called also ‘Monkey’s Audio’. ‘lossless’ means that you can uncompress the file to its original .WAV format without any loss of audio quality. The official program that manages APE files is Monkey’s Audio, you can download it here.
The program of course performs both compression WAV->APE and decompression APE->WAV.

You can also use the ‘Decompression’ feature of EAC, but you have in any case to instally Monkey’s Audio first.

Probably you can also uses different methods, like the various ‘Media Jukeboxes’ that you can find on the net, but Monkey’s Audio program is nice, and it is free. :slight_smile:
