FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, which means audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. Though FLAC is free, open-source format and can be played on many players such as car or home stereo, it is yet to be supported by Apple Mac computer and Apple portable devices. To enjoy incredible quality FLAC audio on Mac and any Apple devices, we need to convert FLAC to Apple Lossless.

Apple Lossless, also known as ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec), or ALE (Apple Lossless Encoder) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music. According to Apple, audio files compressed with ALAC will use up "about half the storage space" that the uncompressed data would require. ALAC can be played on all current iPods, iPhones and iPads, and will play on QuickTime 6.5.1 and iTunes 4.5 and on their later version.
