We store our HD music differnt ways. We have HD downloaded files (192 or 96 kHz with 24-bit resolution). Or we buy DVD-audio for our home audiophile system.
But many car stereos can read only CD audio. Therefore often it's one alternative for playing lossless audio in car audio system.
Need convert HD downloaded audio to WAV files (16 bit/44 kHz format) for burning of CD.
Or rip DVD-audio to WAV or FLAC with converting to WAV 16/44.
Bit-depth and sampling rate conversions (lossless audio file resolution conversion) loss quality always.
Audio resolution conversion burn some distortions (artefacts, noise):
1) Non-linear (additional sound - "dirt");
2) Phase (different time delay of spectrum parts, bad for drums, pianos, other instruments with sharp sound attack);
3) Pre-ringing and post-ringing (additional sound before and after time front of audio signal);
4) Quantization errors (when changing bit-depth).
Best audio resolution converters be able to process sound with minimal level of the distortions.
alphaD dithering algorithm mask quantization error noise (16 bit to 24 bit and 24 to 16) to improve of sound transparency.
Ideal conversion software is a tool with minimum artefacts and suitable minimalistic user interface.
As show experience, not need a lot setting obscure for user. Manufacturer must tune your product to best possible sound.
User should have possibility select some settings for his tasks without useless spending of time.
Recommended version is Audiophil-E:
1. Fast parallel batch processing.
2. Support no-pre-ringing conversion of output files for decreasing artefacts into converted sound.
1. Rip CD to WAV or FLAC 16 bit / 44 kHz
2. Simply convert WAV (16 bit / 44 kHz) to WAV (16 bit / 44 kHz) with AuI ConverteR (dithering turn on)
3. Burn CD and listen it.
