I use AVS media player for my studio quality FLAC downloads.

You can download codecs to play 'em in Windows Media Player, but this adds a 'conversion' into the process, and I found the files didn't sound quite as good as AVS media player, which is free by the way.

JRiver is best in everything multimedia.
