Ripping CDs to FLAC

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am reorganizing my WMA Lossless collection, converting everything to FLAC. I noticed that when I rip directly from a CD, as opposed to converting the same song from WMA LSL to FLAC, the file sizes differ: they are about 4MB larger (on average, same compression level and sample rate) if ripped from CD vs converting it (using Switch) from WMA LSL. I'm guessing that would be normal, but I've been wrong before.

If it is normal, is there a loss in sound quality?


Thank you!
