What's the difference between MP3 and FLAC formats?Mp3 files, encoded at 128-192 kbps (near-CD quality), are the standard format that supports most portable players that play digital music files. Mp3 files are very versatile and are easily transferred to your personal computer, CDs, and portable players. However, Mp3 files are compressed, and for the critical ear may not sound quite as good as the original source recording.
Flac files are a "lossless" compression. These files are still compressed, but they retain the audio information from the mastered recording. Flac files are much larger and take a longer time to download, however they sound identical to the original source (44.1 kHz, 16 bit stereo) and are for audiophiles that desire the best of sound quality. FLAC files may be burned directly to CD on a PC running Nero CD Burning software with the FLAC plugin, while Mac OS X users must extract FLAC to AIFF files to burn CDs or to listen to the files.You may listen to FLAC files with a special plug-in for Winamp (PC). Be sure to check compatibility with your favorite software or portable player.
Please note that there is currently no FLAC software for any Mac OS prior to OS X.
Are all shows available in both MP3 and FLAC formats?While the majority of our downloads are available in both formats, due to various recording techniques used in the past not all files are available in FLAC.
How do I listen to FLAC files?WINDOWS:
MAC OS X (there is currently no FLAC software for any Mac OS prior to OS X):

3) If you are using the latest version of Nero CD Burning software, you can skip the conversion step. Make sure you have installed the proper FLAC software with the FLAC plugin for Nero. Drag the FLAC files for each disc onto Nero and burn your CDs according to Nero's instructions.
MAC OS X (there is currently no FLAC software for any Mac OS prior to OS X):
1) Make sure you have OS X (10.2 or later) and the latest FLAC software.

Can I use a dial-up modem or do I need a cable modem or DSL?You can download shows on a dial-up modem, but it may take about 12 hours or more for one show in standard Mp3 format.
