[SOLVED] How does the compression rate affect sound quality

Post by tim0515 »

Hi, I would like to convert my dsf file to flac but I found out the output size is way bigger than the original by converting it to 176.4khz when choosing Uncompress. Just want to know how much the sound quality is if choosing compress like 5 or 8? Many thanks

Yes, the file will be bigger, if you chose the "Uncompress" option. Normally you should use the "Compress" option as no quality will be lost because Flac is lossless format. The output file will be generally smaller if you chose the higher compression, but it won't affect the quality.
