Profile

Fan of italodance, eurodance, slowstyle / lento violento and similar related genres.

I am a lossless file collector. All releases in my Collection are in lossless format (FLAC = WAV) from original CD / Vinyl / DAT / WEB source.

I own all the releases that I have submitted (Contributed) on Discogs, even if they are not marked as being in my Collection (except those in my Wantlist -- those I have in MP3 format, but want to upgrade them eventually).

WHAT IS FLAC ?
FLAC is a lossless music file format. It is essentially the same as WAV (original CD quality). You can think of FLAC like a ZIP or RAR, but for music WAV files. If you want to get the original WAV file back, simply "un-FLAC" the FLAC file. You can do that with "FLAC frontend" or some other similar program. Quality of FLAC and WAV files is the same! FLAC also supports tagging (entering artist & title & other information) while WAV generally does not support that. Some links for further reading: https://xiph.org/flac/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLAC

RECOMMENDED WEBSITE
Have you ever wondered which of the releases in your Wanted list are in some other user's Collection? Currently Discogs doesn't show this, but there is a website where you can create an "Intersection" of releases which are in your Wantlist and in another user's Collection so you can quickly see which releases the user has that you want. Visit Ogger Club and just log-in with your existing Discogs account credentials.

FAKE / LOSSY WAV & FLAC FILES IN WEB SHOPS
Digital downloadable lossless (WAV / FLAC / ...) releases by some labels are NOT lossless. These labels sent lossy WAVs (converted from MP3) to web-shops, so you have to be very careful when you buy any release from them and always check your downloaded files with a spectrum analysis tool like "Spek". If you bought such a file, contact the web-shop and demand a refund.
