AAC to FLAC Command Line

AAC gives better sounding quality than MP3; it is supported by the most of modern gadgets. However, it is not as good in sounding as lossless audio formats, such as FLAC. FLAC is suitable for playing music on high-quality professional stereo systems; it encodes sound in full, not cutting any frequencies.
