what's left?  either they just wanted something proprietary (well that didn't last long) or it has some unknown advantage on hi-res audio that isn't supported by the encoder yet.


Well, we already know that it will support 24bit multichannel encoding in QT 7..

Well it appears that news sources are quoting/metioning this particular thread here on HA and the Slashdot article about this new open source ALAC decoder. Very interesting to see this getting picked up in the computer news sites:

MacObserver.com article:

FLAC has 24bit multichannel too, but the question is whether ALAC's compression will be significantly better. have to wait and see.

Uh, oh, now the news outlets just released a story portraying this Apple Lossless decoder as "Cracking iTunes". I can't believe it. You'd think he was breaking .m4p DRM or something.

Article: Developer cracks iTunes encoding format
