FLAC is a losslessly compressed audio formats which means audio is compressed without data loss but file size can be reduced to 50–60% of its original size. FLAC is supported by many hardware devices like WD TV, Samsung Galaxy phones and tabs, etc.
However, ripping CD to FLAC on Mac is not quite easy as converting CD to FLAC on Windows. The native CD Ripper, iTunes, can only rip CD to MP3, AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV. Some programs that batch rip CD to FLAC easily are yet to support Mac OS X system.
Actually there are several free Mac programs that can convert CD to FLAC, like X Lossless Decoder and Max. But XLD and MAX fail to win some people’s favor as XLD is unable to edit output song names before decoding, decodes one file at a time and doesn’t utilize multi-core processing; and MAX stopped updating since 2009 and may not meet your demands if you are Mountain lion and Mavericks users.
