How do you play your 24-bit FLAC files?

FLAC logo

The 24-bit FLAC files we offer full members of Society of Sound are proving incredibly popular. They are close to being the most popular of the three formats we offer, which is both reassuring, and a little bit surprising. Reassuring because we feel that they offer the best sound quality possible, and we know that like us you care about sound quality. Surprising, because they are a little trickier to handle than the other options – for example, Apple Lossless, which you can just dump them into the massively popular iTunes and listen to them.

So we’d like to ask you a question? How do you play them? On your computer, streamed to your hi-fi, copied to DVD or some other way?

    I’ve downloaded the FLAC 5.1 version of Tubular Bells. My USB drive shows a stereo signal going into my receiver (Marantz 5008). How do I play the 5.1 files over my system? Thank you.

    I have a 3 month free trial, which allows me 2 albums this is great but how is it possible to hear a sample first?
    thanks for help-

    Hi David,
    You can download all the available albums for three months, not just two. The best way is to download and see if you like it.
