high res FLAC download?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm somewhat of a Download newbie. Couple of questions; [I've already convert the Zip files to FLAC]

1) why are these downloads in FLAC format as opposed to WAV? Since the quantization is the same (24b/96k) you're not saving any space by being FLAC correct? And as far as I know, any old cd player recognizes WAV. I have a cd player from 1988 and it plays my WAV cd-r's fine.

2) (on my Windows 7/64-bit computer) most of my audio programs don't recognize FLAC.  The only one that does is Audacity. What's the best way to put these FLAC files onto either a DVD-A or BD?

3) rumor has it the High Res download version of Good Times Bad Times/Communication Breakdown from the Paris 10/10/69 show has a time length of 4:05, but I just downloaded it and it's the same as the cd? 

 Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I use flac all the time, it is smaller than wav but not by a huge amount.

 

GTBT/CB is listed as being 4:06 in my winamp playlist

I figured out how to burn to a dvd-a

Ya Wiki lists GTBT/CB at 4:05 for the download, but my download was only 3:52, just like the time on the cd.

You can easily convert FLACs to WAVs using the free software called Trader's Little Helper.  It also makes check sum files.
