Re: Apple Lossless vs. AIFF

First I am a little confused. If you are not ripping from CD then how are you getting AL or AIFF files?

If you do not have the option in the IMPORTING settings of iTunes set to Error Correction on CD reading. Then I can agree with your statement. You have to have this to rip from CD or error tracks will drive you crazy.

If you are downloading then converting to AL... well that is a waste of time as you already have thrown out too much information to recover it.

I did spend a ton of time before converting my lib from AIFF to AL and found no difference in output between an AIFF and AL file on playback.
