I've been reading up on lossless codecs and I'm curious about which are the most preferred by most people and which people think are the best in their opinion. It appears most are favouring FLAC but I've also heard support for Monkeys Audio (APE) and also WavPack and read enough things to make my eyes bleed on Hydrogen Audio forums. Is FLAC really best? And if so whats people opinions on Encoders? Again I hear lots of support for EAC but I tend to use CDex at the moment.
