It was a long time since guruboolez's poll in 2009. I hope he is not angry that I copy/paste his poll.

The difference with previous polls is that this one is multiple choice. You are free to choose a few codecs. Like Codec A for DAP and Codec B for PC.

I would ask administrators, please, move topic to poll section. I could not create a topic in poll section for some reason.

I haven't changed:

One file per track LAME MP3 -V5 for car/computer/iPod

Single Wavpack Image with embedded cuesheet for my CD archive.


If I download FLAC or Apple lossless tracks I convert to Wavpack. I do have FLAC versions of the music a friend and I make, as I have more chance of that being useful to 3rd parties.
