Best Wav to Flac converters

I have a number of 24/96 wav files from the small high end audiophile Amsterdam based label Sound Liaison,absolutely incredible well recorded Jazz and Blues music,but all 24/96 wav.

I want to convert them to flac.

I have been told that there is no quality difference in the free downloadable converters,but

which one do you recommend?(Ease of use tagging etc).

FLAC

All wav to flac converters use the same method, which is the one contained in the basic FLAC converter and which is available here: http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html

As for tagging, I recommend using mp3tag: http://www.mp3tag.de/en/

Since wav files do not contain any tags, all wav to flac conversions will require some kind of after conversion tagging of the flac files. mp3tag is very easy to use and, with a little effort and experience, can also be very powerful.

In addition I recommend picking a registered copy of dbpoweramp, the best digital music file utility available: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/

This will be one of those rare occasions when jazzfan and I are in complete agreement! wink

Convert WAV to FLAC

I was able to get it to work by following a tutorial at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/convert-flac-to-wav.html

I don't know if there's a better option.
