Any reason not to use Apple Lossless over AIFF?
Due to hard drive problem I need to burn my music again - about 1500 cds. I originally used AAC so happy to re-burn and improve the quality.I have an iMAC so going to use either AIFF or Apple Lossless.
Clearly lossless will take up less room but I want to make sure I make the right choice long-term.I have looked through the forum discussions and realise AIFF and Apple Lossless should ultimately sound the same played back as Lossless only compresses rather than losses any info (as the name suggests).
However, is there any other reason why I should use AIFF over Apple Lossless? E.g. can only be played via certain players etc?The
How To from WHF simply suggests using WAV, AIFF or Apple Lossless without distinction. Saw in a post that Editor Clare uses Lossless so I guess that means it's good enough with no issues.
Any advice welcome.
