Hi all,

I've just noticed that 24-bit FLAC files converted to ALAC are significantly larger than the original FLAC files, and not much smaller than WAV.
Regular 16-bit files have negligible difference.

Is this normal? Is it the same for you?


Original FLAC - 34.1 MB

FLAC to ALAC using XLD - 64.5 MB

FLAC to WAV using XLD - 77.3 MB
WAV to ALAC using iTunes - 64.5 MB

ALAC to FLAC using XLD - 38.9 MB
WAV to FLAC using XLD - 38.9 MB
