How to Convert Spotify Music to FLAC?

Spotify Music to FLAC

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. What’s nice is that FLAC can compress an original source file by up to 50%-60% without losing a single bit of data. What’s even nicer is that FLAC is an open source and royalty-free format rather than a proprietary one, so it doesn’t impose any intellectual property constraints.

It’s actually quite simple once you realize that all Spotify music are encoded with protection, which is designed to prevent unauthorized copying of Spotify music.
