Which music format?
I am coming back to iPhone after a couple of years because I just hate Android and the main thing I am having an issue with is music file formats. I have tried to do some research and I think I have a decent enough understanding of the differences. I need a little clarity if I can.
My question is sort of 3 parts. In a nutshell, I want to find out if I should go AIFF or ALAC. All my files are currently FLAC files and I use VLC to listen to them on my MAC.
I want to convert the Flac files to AIFF for my MAC but also need to use them on my iPhone.
Will the iPhone play the AIFF files with any sample rate or do I need to keep it low?
I am also trying to figure out if the Apple Match or Music is a viable solution. If I understand correctly the files will be converted to AAC on those services.
Sorry for the long windedness. I can hear the difference in quality (believe me, my wife nagged me about it until she finally wanted to test me. She was wrong.) and just want the best experience in listening on MAC and Phone without having to convert more than once.
