FLAC files: to convert or not to convert to CD-DA.


Hi:

I have a lot of .flac files downloaded from several sites. Most of them come with a .cue file, and the .jpg with the cover, etc.
It seems it is the intention of the uploader that one rebuilds the original CDDA. However, if I had a stand-alone CD/DVD player with flac capabilities, I would hardly see the point of converting the flac to cdda. Furthermore, I could even play the flacs with a software player although, in this case, the audio quality would not be so good due to the noise picked up by the signal from the PC digital circuits.

So, the question is: what do most people do with these .flac files? Or better yet: what is the appropriate thing to do with them? Regards.

Leave them as they are and enjoy lossless, full quality audio.
