I have a raspberry pi 3, used as hifi player.
I will archive all my 300-400 CDs in FLAC files, to be played on.
I discovered the FLAC file compression can range from 0 (no compression) to 8 (high compression); from this value depends the file size.
I think more compressed the files are, more power the raspberry pi will used to. Are you agree ?
My question : what is the best compression to put on the FLAC, to be read smoothly from raspberry pi 3 ?
A 2Tb drive will store the audio files.
