It sometimes happens that we're craving new tunes so much that we don't consider playing music in any audio playing but iTunes (just because it's default). However, I'm pretty sure that you know your favorite tracks can sound much better if you just put some efforts into it. Usually, it doesn't narrow down to the sound card, speakers or headphones, but what really can make music sound deeper and clearer is a Hi-Res format of the song and a decent audio player that is capable of playing this format. Unfortunately, most audio players for Mac are designed to play more but not better. But how can we appreciate a song if the quality leaves much to be desired.
All audio formats fall into two categories: compressed and uncompressed. The former in its turn can be lossy and lossless. We can't say for sure that some are good and others are bad. They're just different.
How do they differ?
Uncompressed music sound exactly how it was recorded in a studio. Sound waves are captured and converted to a digital format with no further processing. Because of that, uncompressed files are usually the most accurate, but they take up a lot of disc space (35 MB per minute of a song on average).
Uncompressed audio formats are:
The term "lossy" stands for a form of compression when some data is lost during the compression process. In other words, some sounds are thrown away for file size. Providing you use poor headphones you won't be able to hear the difference.
Lossy formats include:
- WMA and more...
On the other hand is lossless compression, that is a method of processing that reduces files size with no data loss in quality, so the sound of the original file remains. The main drawback is that this kind of compression makes the file size smaller, but still relatively big (songs are 50-100 MB on average). Uncompressed and lossless files are sometimes called Hi-Res (High-Resolution), and they sound best.
Most ordinary audio players don't support Hi-Res formats, as they're not that popular as lossy (MP3, to be precise).
My primary goal is to persuade you that the quality does matter and tell you about a useful and universal player, that is likely to suit music lovers.
Some think that taking an uncompressed (or lossless file) and converting it to MP3 will just change the format, but indeed converting WAV to MP3 is a hideous thing to do
