I apologise if this it the wrong sub-forum but it relates directly to FLAC so I figured I'd post it here.

You really have to wonder where people get their information from?

I quote from http://www.avforums.com/forums/17108414-post52.html

QUOTE
FLAC should sound the same as the wave file but it doesn't. It is lossless, which is great, but, unlike Wave it is not a native format to Windows (or Mac) and as such it makes the CPU work much harder than wave does. Resulting, depending on your PC/Mac's spec in noticeable degradation compared to Wave.
