Why Convert DSF/DFF to FLAC

DSD (Direct Stream Digital) is one-bit audiophile digital format for storing Hi-Res audio on Super Audio CDs (SACD). And the music in DSD format is respectively stored in .dsf and .dff file extensions. Just as WAV file stores the uncompressed audio in PCM format, DSF/DFF file also contains the uncompressed audio in DSD format. DSF/DFF files always occupy much storage space and they are less popular so most devices and applications don’t support such files. After managing to download some .dsf or .dff audio files from the Internet, you may find that you can’t play them on your devices. I can understand your feelings. So here I will introduce you a good DFF/DSF file player and show you how to convert DSF to FLAC for better compatibility with more applications.
