Can you tell me which software is the best for converting to *.wav?
Several will.. Most of the time I use foobar2k, or dBpoweramp...
I know that but i never got the point in using flac for uncompressed audio. Plain wav has moderate standalone device support while support for flac is non-existant except for open source based softwares.
We all have our preferences..I use Flac for archiving, it's tag flexibility (wav is all over the place), smaller file size(s)..I can convert from flac (lossless) to any compressed format..
Flac is supported just like wav...Other than on the PC, wav has yet to take-off... I don't know anyone that carries along wav(s) on their portables (aac, mp3 etc. yes)... Flac is supported by apps like, Winamp, foobar2k, dBpoweramp, even VLC supports flac...So-- for me flac makes more sense...To each their own!..
