free lossless audio codec It's like mp3 with better audio quality, the files are a lot bigger though.

That must be a good thing though.
The absolute worst format for music known to mankind is the "mp3"(possibly 8track 2nd).

It's about 50% compression on average. 25-35 MB per file, about 350-450 MB per cd. But lossless compression...

Ok, so someone give me a link.
I'll run it through a Sony ES Integrated Amplifier and a set of Mirage Studio Reference Monitors and tell you what I think.

My brother built a music player out of a computer that uses this or ogg vorbis. He bought some sound card and spent like 600 bucks to have some guy modify it somewhere. I could ask to find out the details but apperantly it performs as good as some very expensive digital to anilog converters ( DAC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital-to-analog_converter) ).
