    Conversion from flac to ios device

    What is the cleanest and most direct way of converting flac files and pushing to ios device. IOS DEVICES, such as iPadPro can now be had with 1TB storage, iPhone with 512GB. And also not using iTunes. I do it now, but not sure of most efficient way of doing it. Which converter and which final iOS codec?

    If you install Foobar2000 mobile, this will play the flac files on the iPhone and iPad, you just need a method of getting the files on the ios device:

    I wasn't aware of foobar2000mobile. I could possibly download the App from the Apple Store (if they have it) to my iPad. Possibly then get a Usb to lightning cable from the external hdd to the iPad and see if the app will process these files, metadata, etc. into my iPad via foobar2000mobile to some predesignated location on the iPad. With some very unscientific testing of transmitting files wirelessly from my iPad to to my dac which is connected to my stereo, I'm beginning to believe that music sounds better and easier sounding and more pleasurable in general wirelessly than using the standard hard wired computer audio solution. Mechanical/electrical interfaces become irrelevant. it could be that the benefits of wireless transmission outweigh the bandwidth limitations.

    I can do this. you said I could get foobar2000mobile and play Flac files on the iPhone and iPad. So what is the method of getting the files on the iOS device? through tune fusion? how does that work. I'll buy whatever it takes, just as I always have.

    First I need to transfer these Flac files from an external hdd to a MacBook Pro using a dbpoweramp converter. which converter do I use to install on the Mac. I can then sync from the MacBook Pro to the iPad with a syncing cord. I've got the dbpoweramp software I think. I've bought it all. which do I use?

    You can copy the flac files with Finder to the MacBook, no need to convert them. You would sync with TuneFUSION to foobar mobile.
