FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of the music without any loss in quality. A FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file so will take longer to download.
FLAC files require a special player. For more information on FLAC format and the various players available please visit the FLAC website
