    Default Convert FLAC to WMA or AAC?

    I was thinking of converting all my FLAC files. It's just that I'm not sure which setting is more efficient in preserving the original fidelity while remaining small in size:

    AAC 320kbps
    AAC 500kbps
    WMA8 640kpps
    WMA8 320kbps
    WMA9.2 VBR

    MP3 is not an option for obvious reasons. Sampling rate is set to 48KHz. I've never seen a 96KHz option in any audio converter. I don't know why, but I would like to see it implemented.

    Reasons for converting: Free up more hard drive space (later I'm going to convert all my videos to H264 MP4 to save even more space) & support for Windows Media Player's Library (so OGG is out too).

    I know you are looking for software suggestions, but maybe this would be better suited in the audio section?

    If you want me to move it let me know! Sorry I don't have any suggestions that I know for sure work, maybe audactity

    I found this discussion that might help

    Software suggestions are welcomed. But most importantly:

    Is 500kbps - 640kpbs is an overkill? Is AAC more superior than WMA? Is 2-pass encoding recommended for AAC? Does setting the Sampling rate at 48Khz rather than the standard 44.1Khz make any difference?

    >320K, AAC and OGG is almost up to 100% original quality.
    320K OGG=AAC>MP3>WMA
    256K OGG>AAC>MP3>WMA
    224K OGG>MP3>AAC>WMA
    192K OGG>MP3>WMA>AAC
    128K OGG>WMA>AAC>MP3

    I greatly recommend WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe to you. It will gives you ultimate control over SD, HD and 4K resolution video files, like MP4 H.264 MOD AVI ACC, just name a few . All bit rate and resolution parameters are adjustable to balance the video quality and the file size. Since Digiarty is giving away the latest version of WinX HD Video Converter DLX, you are welcome to get free license key till Oct.28.
