Does playback software make a difference in audio quality? (Mac)

Look. Why don't we turn this into a multi million dollar (/BTC) business right away?

Cut the desperate looking for help and salvation in niches of the internet and offer the service ourselves.

QUESTION:
Would you pay for music (in BTC) if it were offered as a FLAC download? Would you if it paid the artists directly? Would you if the music was free to download and copy regardless?

There's some FLAC audio near where I am.

I used to handcraft my FLACs myself.  Smiley

EAC, great tool, those were the days. Also runs in Wine.

That aside, didn't iTunes offer at least some artists optionally as AAC lossless too?

I have spent some time using Amarra with iTunes, some people say it is better:

check this thread out:
http://www.head-fi.org/t/539740/mac-os-x-music-players-alternatives-to-itunes

I think the most important part of the signal chain is your DAC...I noticed a huge difference when using an outboard DAC connected via the macbook's optical out (Cambridge Audio DACMagic).

post-rock like Mono (Japan). They record everything live, the sound is raw and natural, this does require high-fidelity losslessness, many codecs fuck this up.
