Are there any audiophiles left here?

And I only mentioned it because I find iTunes (as a local
program) operates very nicely as a music database. I didn't
want to mess around with transferring/importing my all my music
files and relearn yet-another music program when iTunes is
pretty darn good at what it does. It even supports streaming
files across a LAN to another pc that has iTunes.

Short of hooking up a scope and/or other measuring devices, our
audio tests were very specific. We tested recordings with
quiet passages, and specific recordings that featured super low
pipe-organ notes. They all seemed to reproduce in FLAC and
AppleLossless equally well.
